Ziauddin Yousafzai
The Fight for Equality and Education

Ziauddin Yousafzai’s life changed forever in 2012 when his daughter, Malala, was shot in the head by Taliban soldiers as she took a school bus. Against the odds, she survived and went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize for her activism. In this extraordinary memoir, her father details the decades he spent fighting for the rights of women and girls in Pakistan, the school that he set up to educate them – and his determination to keep on fighting.

In conversation with Preti Taneja, author of We That Are Young and winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize for New Fiction 2018.
