This is her live Alex. She is a woman having a voice in country where women have no voice. She has become a beacon of what can be. In Pakistan, women are told not to voice their opinions and to keep it to themselves. Just read an article where the women in her village are not even allowed to speak her name or discuss what she is doing because she may give them the wrong ideas. seriously? in 2013?

Remind me why our illustrious President won one of these?! Seems to diminish the prize to many when it becomes a political toy.

My choice for the ''Nobel Peace Prize'' was Abdul Satter Edhni'', he was know as ''Father Teresa'' of Pakistan. A philanthropist who saved 20,000 abandoned infants, took in 50,000 orphans, trained 40,000 nurses, etc. Sadly, he is practically unknown outside of Pakistan. He also started the first volunteer ambulance service in Pakistan.

Christianne and brian: why, though Malala'smother was equally supportive, is Malala's mother kept inside the house while the young girl is projected internationally by her "incredible father"? And why is this young girl receiving the narcissitic projection of "prodigy" instead of being allowed to be a human young person and to have her life?
