An inspiring letter to Malala Yousafzai, two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, that is both a show of support and a call to action for girls around the world.
Malala became the youngest person to ever be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize after she survived being shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking out in favor of a girl's right to an education. She survived this brutal attack and has emerged as a very powerful voice for social justice in the world. "Dear Malala, We Stand with You "captures the impact Malala has had on girls from all walks of life.
In powerfully simple language and stunning photographs, the struggles from poverty and violence faced by girls everywhere become a catalyst for change. The book includes an excerpt from Malala's UN speech and provides readers with ways they can help and participate. Malala's bravery has shown that one person and one voice is enough to change the world. As UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, the terrorists are most afraid of "the girl with a book."
