Malala Yousafzai: Meet My Father And My Mother

Malala Yousafzai couldn’t come to TED2014 — because she has vowed to never miss another day of school. But her voice was heard through this video, which introduced Ziauddin Yousafzai’s powerful talk about his daughter and their shared commitment to education.

My daughter, Malala 
Pakistani educator Ziauddin Yousafzai reminds the world of a simple truth that many don’t want to hear: Women and men deserve equal opportunities for education, autonomy, an independent identity. He tells stories from his own life and the life of his daughter, Malala, who was shot by the Taliban in 2012 simply for daring to go to school. "Why is my daughter so strong?” Yousafzai asks. “Because I didn’t clip her wings."
