The Nobel Peace Prize Sends a Message

Hosted by

It was announced today that this year’s Nobel Peace Prize has been divided between two people—a 17-year old Pakistani crusader for girls’ education and a 60-year old Indian man who has liberated child laborers in that country. The young woman is Malala Yousafzai, known worldwide since she recovered after being shot by the Taliban. Malala says her ambition is to be what she calls a “good” politician.

Aryn Baker profiled Malala in 2012, when she was Time magazine’s correspondent in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
