Malala Yousafzai To Host Twitter Chat

About empowering girls through education.

Malala Yousafzai, the young education and women's rights activist who was shot by the Taliban, will host her first Twitter chat on Monday. She will answer questions about using education to empower girls and her new organization, the Malala Fund, which seeks to help girls gain access to school. The chat comes just a couple of weeks before Yousafzai is set to release her first book, I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban on Oct. 8. Earlier this month, Yousafzai received Amnesty International's Ambassador of Conscience award in Dublin, Ireland.
