Malala Makes it to UK's 150 Most Influential Women List
Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has made it to the list of the most influential female leaders in the UK, a list prepared by Harper’s Bazaar UK to commemorate its 150th anniversary.
Influential women from a wide range of professions were among the list inlcuding those ranging from fashion, beauty and travel to finance, science and arts.
Born in Swat valley, Malala Yousafzai received the Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17. She was awarded for her zealous struggle for the education of girls in her home town.
Yousafzai has since become the symbol of activism for education, setting up Malala Fund, an organisation aiming to campaign for child rights and the means to access education for children throughout the world.
The young activist is currently studying at the Oxford University where she’s pursuing a PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) degree.
Harper’s Bazaar states, “…each of the individual on the list has proved herself to be forward-thinking, high-achieving and an inspirational role model to women everywhere.”
Yousafzai was listed in ‘Opinion Formers’ that included eleven influential women aiming towards human rights, women rights and child rights.
Other women of prominence who have also been listed are Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge), Victoria Beckham and Kate Winslet. Full list here.
