Malala to submit education petition to the UN

Women's education campaigner Malala Yousafzai is to make a speech to the UN today at 2.30pm while delivering the petition alongside former British Prime Minister and UN Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown.

Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for campaigning for the education of girls in Pakistan. 

She was only 11 when she started campaigning and stands as an inspiration for women around the world. 

The petition she is submitting to the UN is asking for the UN to campaign for women's education around the world.
