The Chermside Amnesty International Action Group is hosting a screening of “He Named me Malala” at the Brisbane Square Library on June 28 at 6:30PM.
This movie is about the Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, the world’s youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
Malala was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally.
Why is Amnesty promoting this movie?
Amnesty International believes that women and girls should be able to live with dignity and equality, free from discrimination and violence, empowered to make decisions about their own bodies and lives. We believe in Malala.
Come along and learn more about Malala’s dangerous fight for women’s rights and learn from our special guest speaker Roxxanne, from Amnesty’s women’s rights network.
Join Amnesty International Chermside at a screening of this important and informative film at the Brisbane Square Library on June 28 at 6:30PM.
