This year’s Nobel Peace Prize winners were announced to the world, and for once they got it right. Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, hailing from Pakistan and India respectively, were the very deserving winners for 2014.
Malala, who is the youngest recipient ever of the Nobel Peace Prize, has spent the entirety of her youth fighting for the rights of young girls in Pakistan to receive the same education as boys. Most notably, she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago upon her insistence that girls receive the same education as the boys in the town of Mingora, which, according to the Associated Press, is “the main town in Pakistan’s volatile Swat valley.”
Kailash Satyarthi, 60, was awarded for his life’s work as a kingpin for the movement to end child slavery. Satyarthi has stated, “Child slavery is a crime against humanity. Humanity itself is at stake here. A lot of work still remains but I will see the end of child labor in my lifetime.”
