“There's a moment when you have to choose whether to be silent or stand up.” - Malala Yousafzai
What better way to commemorate International Women’s Day than with the inspiring story of one of our modern time’s most beloved activists? Join Ellevate Network in celebrating International Women’s Day with a screening of “HE NAMED ME MALALA,” a moving documentary film that shows an intimate portrait of Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai.
At the age of 15, Malala was wounded when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her and her friends' school bus in Pakistan's Swat Valley. She had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls' education in her region. Malala has since emerged as a leading advocate for children's rights and girls’ education. Today, over 60 million girls are out of school globally. It is time to take action!
All proceeds for this event will be donated to the Malala Fund.
