The 16-year-old is determined about leading a campaign for girls’ education. On October 9, 2012, a Taleban gunman shot at Malala, which gravely injured her, but she survived and has continued to support girls’ education in Pakistan. Malala treated this incident as part of her life and has chosen to embark on a noble mission for improving girls’ education in conflict-ridden territory of her country. She is continuing her campaign to get girls into school, even though, she knows that Taleban have been against woman’s education.

Surprisingly, Malala has gained extra ordinary attention worldwide.

Despite the fact that Pakistan has highly traditional society, women are getting opportunities in different spheres of life. Women are making their mark in the air force and sports — for instance, first group of female paratroopers has completed their training. Nevertheless, in other countries of the world, Muslim women are getting empowered.
