If you think that books don’t have an impact on the lives of children, watch this film and you’ll change your mind.  Nobel Prizewinner, Malala Yousafzai talks about how reading the biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. taught her that the fight for equality could be won. This inspired Malala to begin her own campaign of equal education for girls.

In this film, Malala also responds to the banning of her own book and accusations that she has become a Western tool rather than a true voice of her own. She talks about the hopelessness of people that leads them to be suspicious and states that the support of equality of women and access to education is not necessarily support of her as a person.

The hopefulness of this articulate young woman can serve as an example to other young people and to adults that they can “be the change.”
