If you care about human rights, women and children’s rights and education, you must watch this incredible interview with the 16 year old Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai shot by the Taliban at age 14 for standing up for girls’ education. Jon Stewart’s interview allows us to feel as close as we can to this brave and powerful girl. Please watch, please see what is possible when one person believes so strongly in what I and many of you know to be true – a child’s hunger to learn is powerful – and in some cases the hunger for education is stronger than the hunger for food or even survival in the face of the Taliban.

Her portion of the show begins at 14:30.
Malala Yousafzai
I hope the Nobel Peace Prize committee sees the reason why Malala is the best example the world has ever had of a true peace activist.
