in honour of International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day, everyone!

In honour of IWD, here are two links to girls who advocated strongly for educational access despite, or perhaps because of, tremendous systemic challenges:

Shannen Koostachin, a young Aboriginal Canadian who advocated for equal education for children in First Nations reserves and other Aboriginal communities.

Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani who campaigns for the rights of girls to be educated. She was shot by the Taliban but recovered and continues her advocacy.
