Lady Gaga. Liya Kebede. Barbra Streisand. Christy Turlington Burns. Malala Yousafzai. Natalie Massenet. Gabby Giffords. And Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis. What all these amazing women have in common is the fact that they were each awarded at Carnegie Hall, last night, in New York City at Glamour’s 23rd Annual Women of the Year Awards.
The award winner that I really admire is 16 year old, Malala Yousafzai, who was a victim of an assassination attempt about a year ago. After she stood up to Taliban rule, and advocating for education for girls. Transforming into a Global symbol for the power of a peaceful protest. Since surviving a gunshot wound in her head. Now that’s what I call an Amazing, brave, hardworking, and Beautiful woman that isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in. And when issues strike that we don’t agree with, Yousafzai is definately the perfect role model of showing anyone how to stand up for what you believe in. Epically when standing up to something as powerful as the Taliban. What I can’t believe is that she has done so much and she’s only 16!!!!!!! Now that’s a brave woman.
For all of these women’s courage, bravery, and help to make this world a better place, Girls really do run the World.
