Film screening of "He Named Me Malala"

Description
ingapore Committee for UN Women, in collaboration with the Malala Fund and the Hive, invite you to celebrate the right to education for girls with us at the screening of the film “He Named Me Malala” on the 27th November 2017 from 7 to 9:30 pm, as part of the 16 Days of Activism. The screening will be followed by an interactive discussion.

On the 9th of October 2012, Malala was attacked by a masked gunman of the Taliban terrorist group on the way home from school. A single bullet went through her head, neck and shoulder. The attack had left her unconscious and in critical condition, but she managed to survive the attack. This bullet did not silence her. Instead, Malala went on to become a fierce champion of women’s rights and the universal right to education. She co-founded the Malala Fund so as to bring awareness to the social and economic impact of girls’ education and to empower young girls to speak out against social injustices. For her efforts, she received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 at the age of 17, becoming the youngest ever recipient of the prize. Her birthday, 12th of July, was declared as Malala Day by the United Nations, in order to honour her and to raise awareness about the right to education, especially for young girls.

About the 16 Days of Activism - From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 days of Activism Campaign is aimed at galvanize action to end violence against women and girls.
