A letter of sisterhood to Malala Yousafzai expressing the belief that every girl has the right to go to school. This beautiful collection of photographs from international agency Plan brings together its “Because I am a Girl” message with the powerful presence of Malala Yousafzai. After being shot for the simple act of going to school in her native Pakistan, Malala has become an international girls’ rights icon and a contender for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The book is written as a letter from girls around the world to Malala, as they express their sympathy, sisterhood and admiration for her. These girls, too, know the barriers that stand in the way of a girl going to school. For some it is poverty, for others, early marriage, discrimination or violence. In Malala, they recognize a leader and a friend. A powerful tool for social justice education and for commemorating July 12, Malala’s birthday, recognized by the UN as Malala Day and celebrated around the world. A portion of proceeds will go to Plan's Because I am a Girl campaign.
