Malala urges world to stand with Afghan women


Education activist and Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai on Sunday said that people should support Afghan women in their struggle for the “right to learn”.

Taking to Twitter, she said that the world must stand with the Afghan women who are raising their voice for the right to an education.

Malala, who is also the co-founder of the Malala Fund that advocates women’s education, urged the people to sign the letter she wrote in association with Women & Children Legal Research Foundation Director Zarqa Yaftali and Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission Chairperson Shaharzad Akbar.

The letter, according to Malala, has been written to call on the Taliban-led Afghan government, G20, and the international Muslim leadership to “take action” for the right of Afghan girls and women to education. Malala has linked her post to the letter she requests people sign.
