The must-see documentary of 2015: ‘He Named me Malala’. Win a double pass with Remix

Malala-Kenya-EJ-1.jpg Coming to cinemas on the 5th of November is ‘He Named me Malala’ the amazing documentary of Malala, the incredible young woman who defied the Taliban and demanded that girls be allowed to receive an education. Malala was born in in 1997, in a small town in Pakistan. In 2011, after receiving the National Youth Peace Prize, Taliban leaders voted to kill her. Continuing to speak out for the right to education, she was revealed as the author of the BBC blog. On October 9th 2012, Malala was shot through the left side of her head, neck, and shoulder. However, this didn’t stop her. The Taliban’s attempt to kill Malala created worldwide condemnation and led to protests across Pakistan, with over two million people signing the Right to Education petition. Malala became a global advocate of education for girls, and even received the Nobel Peace Prize last year at age 17, becoming the youngest person to ever receive the award. She now has a fund to bring awareness to the social and economic impact of girls’ education, to demand change and raise awareness. ‘He Named me Malala’ shows Malala’s incredible journey and gives an insight into her world, and the changes we need to make.
