“Dear Malala, we have never met before, but I feel like I know you.”

Malala Yousafzai is an inspiration. A young girl living in Pakistan, she was shot by the Taliban simply because she wanted to go to school. Since that moment, she has captured the attention of the world with her bravery, becoming a voice for the rights of girls everywhere.

This is a letter to Malala, illustrated with beautiful photographs. Girls from around the world express their sympathy, sisterhood and admiration for her. Many of them know first-hand the barriers that stand in the way of girls going to school – barriers like poverty, discrimination and violence.

In Malala these girls recognize a leader, a champion, and a friend.

About the Author:

Rosemary McCarney is former head of the Plan International Canada, where she helped create the very important Because I am a Girl initiative and worked to have an International Day of the Girl declared by the United Nations to celebrate the lives of girls and draw attention to the particular challenged they face.

A lawyer by training Rosemary has put those skills to use in nearly 100 countries around the world. She is now Canadian ambassador to the United Nations.

About Plan:

Because I am a Girl is Plan’s global initiative to end gender inequality, promote girls’ rights, and lift millions of girls – and everyone around them – out of poverty.
