I was so pleased to learn this morning that Malala Yousafzai was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize! In addition to being the youngest person ever to win the Nobel, Malala is a wonderful model of female bravery, conviction and power. She is sharing the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a leading voice against child exploitation from India.
I am reminded that the Greek goddess Artemis was charged with protecting girls and young women, and am touched by the ways that Malala embodies that essence of Artemis. Check out the Malala Fund to learn what she is up to and what you can do to help.
Here's to a world free of child abuse, exploitation where every child gets a quality education!
