The Taliban today attempted to assassinate a 14-year-old Pakistani girl who blogged in defense of education for girls.

Malala Yousafzai is now fighting for survival with bullet wounds to the head and throat. According to the BBC and NBC News she may very well survive, but she may never regain her speaking voice.

So today, I offer this post in tribute to her bravery and the importance of equality and education for women and girls.
