5 brave and inspiring women who are changing the world right now
Nothing can stop the women you are going to read about today. They inspire millions of people to take action and work passionately every day to make the world a better place.
#1 Malala Yousafzai
Her father was a teacher at a girls' school in their village and everything went fine for Malala and her classmates until 2008. That year, Taliban took control of the village and banned school education for girls. Malala and her friends had to leave the school.
Even 4 years later, Malala didn't accept such fate. She spoke publicly about the women's right to learn, which made her a Taliban's target. She was shot on the left side of her head in October 2012. Malala woke up 10 days after the attack in a UK hospital.
After many surgeries and rehabilitation, Malala continued to act. With the help of her father, she established Malala Fund, a charity dedicated to helping girls who want to receive education they deserve. Today Malala is known worldwide as an activist for female education, and she continues to change lives.
In 2014, she became the youngest Nobel Prize laureate (aged 17).
#2 Leymah Gbowee
In 2011, she, along with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Tawakkul Karman, were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work." Gbowee also helped Sirleaf to enable a free election and become the first elected female head of state in Africa.
#3 Greta Thunberg
#4 Nadia Murad
After the escape, Nadia made a difficult decision to openly tell the world about the terrors she went through. Thousands of women remained captive, and Nadia felt the need to help them. She now works to help the victims of human trafficking and abuse.
#5 Melinda Gates
Melinda is a passionate advocate for women rights, and she has recently started a new mission – she wants to attract more women in tech industry, and give them every opportunity to grow, develop their skills and create.
