He Named Me Malala

This is not a WEP event. Members of WEP may be in attendance.


He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.  

Now a Nobel Prize laureate (the youngest ever) and a leading advocate for children’s rights across the globe, Davis Guggenheim’s (Waiting for “Superman”) documentary offers an intimate portrait of an incredibly courageous young woman, balancing her passionate activism with the everyday demands of being both an ordinary, and extraordinary teenage girl. The documentary is being screened at mac birmingham from Friday 20 Nov to Thu 26 Nov 2015 including a special Q&A Panel Nov 25, 6pm with Ziauddin Yousafzai (Malala's father), Dr Fiona Reynolds (who helped save Malala's life when she came to Birmingham) and chaired by Christina Lamb (the co-writer of Malala's first book) This event is in partnership with the Women's Networking Hub and supported by The Time Is Now.
