Angelina Jolie attended the 4th annual Women in the World Summit in New York City last night. She was there to pay tribute to Pakistani teen Malala Yousafzai. Have you heard about Malala? The Taliban shot her in the head for speaking out about girls’ rights to an education. Malala survived, thank goodness, and seems to be making a full recovery in England. I can’t think of a better Hollywood star to support her than Angelina.
Last night Malala announced, via video, the Malala Fund. It’s a $45,000 grant that will be set up in Swat Valley- a Taliban stronghold- to fund the education for girls. Angelina gave a moving tribute to her. I am in awe of Malala’s courage!
