A Must See Film: He Named Me Malala on National Geographic

In October of 2012, the world came to know fifteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai, targeted in an assassination attempt by the Taliban for daring to believe that all girls should have the right to an education.  The world rallied around her recovery, and she rose to carry on with her courageous and constant fight for girls education no matter where they are in the world.

The story of Nobel Laureate and activist, Malala Yousafai came to theaters last year, in the documentary film “He Named Me Malala.” Now, viewers globally can tune into the film’s television premiere, when it airs commercial-free on the National Geographic Channel, on Monday, February 29th, in the U.S., and globally, across 170 countries, in 45 languages.

A Phone Call with Malala

This powerful film moved my close friend and me to tears.  It shares an intimate glimpse of Malala’s life – both public and private – with her family, as a student, as a teenager, and as a courageous activist – inviting viewers to see the tremendous potential within themselves.

  1. I love this story, so powerful

  2. I’ve been waiting for this film to come out…I cannot wait to see it! She is such an inspiration. Young girls need to look up to her as opposed to some pop icons and reality stars, like the Kardashians for example!!

    • I completely agree Lisa! I remember seeing all this press coverage about one of the girl’s extravagant 18th b-day parties – meanwhile, during the same time, Malala marked her 18th birthday with opening a school for girls in Africa!

  3. She sounds so inspirational. I’m sure I would be moved to tears as well seeing it. She’s such a brave girl to carry on her mission of helping to educate girls in the middle east. I know she has inspired so many!
