Runner-Up: Malala Yousafzai, the Fighter Ayesha Mir didn’t go to school on Tuesday, Nov. 27, the day after a security guard found a shrapnel-packed bomb under her family’s car. The 17-year-old Pakistani girl assumed, as did most people who learned about the bomb, that it was intended for her father, the television news presenter Hamid Mir, who often takes on the Taliban in his nightly news broadcasts. Traumatized by the near miss, Ayesha spent most of the day curled up in a corner of her couch, unsure whom to be angrier with: the would-be assassins or her father for putting himself in danger. She desperately wanted someone to help her make sense of things. At around 10:30 p.m., she got her wish.

Un conte de fées chinois : Ma Yan a eu son bac Ma Yan en 2002 dans son collège de Yinchuan (P.Haski/Rue89) C’est l’histoire d’une miraculée... J’ai reçu un court e-mail, en fin de semaine dernière, d’une jeune Chinoise, Ma Yan, m’annonçant qu’elle avait réussi le Gaokao, l’équivalent chinois du bac, qui est surtout le sésame d’entrée à l’université. Sa joie était immense, et la nouvelle a fait énormément plaisir à tous ceux pour qui cette jeune fille était devenue un symbole de ténacité et d’espoir. Par souci de transparence, je signale que je suis co-auteur du « Journal de Ma Yan », et trésorier de l’association Enfants du Ningxia qui en est issue. Au moment de quitter un des villages les plus pauvres, une paysanne confia à l’une d’entre nous une lettre et trois carnets, insistant comme si sa vie en dépendait. Ces carnets deviendront » Le Journal de Ma Yan » , un livre d’abord publié en France en 2002 (éditions Ramsay), puis traduit en 19 langues, y compris... le chinois ! Quant à Ma Yan, oubliés les 7 euros manquant.
104. MALALA YOUSAFZAI: I have the right Malala Yousafzai (1997-) is a 15-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot in the head on the way home from school by the Taliban. Her only crime was criticising the Taliban’s strict rules against female education and standing up for her right to go to school. Inspired by her activist father, Malala was involved in social justice from a young age. She first gained prominence at age 11, when she wrote a blog for the BBC for 10 weeks (under a pseudonym) detailing her life under Taliban rule. On the 9th October 2012, on her way home from school, Malala was shot in the head and neck by a masked gunman (two other children, Kainat Riaz and Shazia Ramzan, were also injured). Malala has recently been nominated for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize, the youngest person in history to receive the honour, and I, along with the millions of people she has inspired, am hoping this remarkable young woman wins. UPDATE: Malala has recently returned to school!
Stand #withMalala for Girls Education A message from Malala Yousafzai, co-founder of the Malala Fund and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate: Sometimes people ask me, why is it important for girls to go to school? I think the more important question to ask is, why shouldn’t girls have the right to go to school? My courageous friend, sixteen year-old Muzoon from Syria, goes from tent to tent in her refugee camp in Jordan encouraging girls to stay in school. There are over 60 million of our sisters around the world who share a thirst for education, yet do not have the opportunity to go to school or who have to drop out too soon. In September, world leaders will commit to 12 years of free, safe, quality primary and secondary education for every girl and every boy in the new United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The GPE is a major funder of education in some of the world’s poorest countries. But currently the GPE’s focus is on funding 9 years of free, quality education for girls in these countries. #WithMalala

Débuts de militantisme en Pologne Née dans une famille juive aisée qui vit à Varsovie, elle milite dès le lycée dans un cercle révolutionnaire. Avec le noyau de ce qui, issu du PPS (parti socialiste polonais) deviendra en 1894 la SDKP (social-démocratie du Royaume de Pologne) et avec Leo Jogiches, qui sera son compagnon de vie de 1890 à 1905, elle fonde en 1893 le journal Sprawa Robotnicza, qu'elle rédige à Paris.

Malala Yousafzai: Portrait of the girl blogger Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai first came to public attention in 2009 when she wrote a BBC diary about life under the Taliban. Now recovering from surgery after being shot by the militants, the campaigner for girls' rights is in the spotlight again. Malala was 11 when she began writing a diary for BBC Urdu. Her blogs described life under Taliban rule from her home town of Mingora, in the northwest region of Pakistan she affectionately calls "My Swat". I am afraid - 3 January 2009 "I had a terrible dream yesterday with military helicopters and the Taliban. On my way from school to home I heard a man saying 'I will kill you'. By 2009, the Taliban controlled much of the Swat Valley and applied their austere interpretation of sharia law. "When the Taliban came to Swat they banned women from going to the market and they banned shopping," Malala told the BBC last year. But Malala's primary objection was to the Taliban's prohibition of female education. Interrupted sleep - 15 January 2009
