MARCH 2009 - Malala Yousafzai, age 12, photographed at home in Peshawar, Pakistan. At the time, Sharia law had just been adopted in the Swat Valley and Malala worried that education for girls after the 4th grade would be banned. Three years later, in October 2012, she was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen, but survived. The militants behind the attack claimed that it was because she promoted secularism.
