A girl only 15 year old , she is a pakistani .. Yousufzai Malala .. her name has been nominated for Nobel peace prize.
It is amazing.  A small girl shot in the head by the Taliban for standing up against the Taliban and openly  advocating girls' education This attack has drawn widespread international condemnation and Yousufzai has become a powerful symbol of resistance to the Taliban's attempts to suppress women's rights.
 Malala does not just represent one young woman ..she speaks out for all those who are denied an education purely on the basis of their gender ..  said by Pakistani British woman, she urged the Prime Minister David Cameron and other senior government officials too to nominate Yousufzai for the Nobel Peace prize.
More than 30000 people have signed on the petition in Britain.  Similar campaign have sprung up in Canada, France and Spain. 
As per  Nobel Committee's rules only prominent figures such as members of national assemblies and governments are able to make nominations.
Yousufzai was unconscious and fighting for her life when she was flown to Britain a month ago but the hospitable in Birmingham where she is being treated says she is recovering well. On Friday it released photographs of Yousufzai reading a book and clutching a white teddy bear dark bruises covering her eyelids. she appeared serious and focused on her reading, her hair covered with a bright pink-and white scarf.
Her shooting was the culmination of years of campaigning that had pitted the young girl against one of Pakistan's most ruthless Taliban commanders Maulana Fazullah. 
The call to nominate the girl comes on the eve of this Saturday's Global day of Action for Yousufzai marking one monh since her shooting. 
In October the Nobel Peace Prize went to the European Union for promoting peace and democracy

  1. The girl may not merit the Nobel yet. But she deserves a lot of attention. A lot action from all right-thinking people. Perhaps, even a Nobel?
