Malala Appeared On The Cover of British Vogue With A Powerful Message To Inspire Girls

Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai has been featured on British Vogue’s July cover, saying “I hope that every girl who sees this cover will know that she can change the world.”

Malala wore a red headscarf on the cover, symbolizing her roots, the Pashtuns culture. 

“Muslim girls or Pashtun girls or Pakistani girls, when we follow our traditional dress, we’re considered to be oppressed, or voiceless, or living under patriarchy,” she said in the interview with British Vogue. “I want to tell everyone that you can have your own voice within your culture, and you can have equality in your culture.”

The 23 year old started to fight for girls’ rights to education in Pakistan in2008 when she was 11, and she was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 for her activism.

Due to the assassination attempt, she was sent to England for recovery and relocated there.

She published her autobiography “I Am Malala” in 2013, which became an international bestseller.

The same year, she founded the Malala Fund, devoting herself to helping provide girls with access to education. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, along with Kailash Satyarthi from India, at the age of 17, becoming the youngest Nobel winner in the world.

In 2017, she was admitted to Oxford University. She has been featured as TIME’s most influential people for several years.

“I care a lot about my work and I worry about how long it would take to reach the goals we have set,” she told Vogue. “People say, ‘Malala, don’t worry, it’s not your responsibility, leaders should worry!’ But if I have the capacity to do something to keep raising awareness, then I should.”

With the Vogue cover, she hopes to inspire girls around the world.

“I know the power that a young girl carries in her heart when she has a vision and a mission,” she wrote on Twitter.
