A 14 year old girl was shot in Pakistan. Her crime? Calling for “Western”-style education for girls. Malala was ordered to be shot by the Taliban’s most feared commanders, Maulana Fazlullah.

Shot in the head and the neck, Malala Yousufzai still lies unconscious in hospital, unaware that world leaders from U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to U.S. President Barack Obama have pledged support. School children in Swat prayed for her recovery.

Malala voiced opposition toward the Taliban for the first time at the age of 11, even writing a blog for the BBC on the conditions of girls and women in the Swat Valley.
