International Women’s Day Event: Screening of ‘He Named Me Malala’

March 22, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Ellevate Pittsburgh in celebrating International Women’s Day with a screening of “He Named Me Malala,” a moving documentary film that shows an intimate portrait of Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai.

At the age of 15, Malala was wounded when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her and her friends’ school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. She had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her region. Malala has since emerged as a leading advocate for children’s rights and girls’ education. Today, over 60 million girls are out of school globally. It is time to take action!
