He Named Me Malala Airs Monday 2/29! + Reader Giveaway

Sponsored Post Disclosurehnmm_solution

Mark your calendars and set an alarm on your phones because there is a TV event happening on Monday night that you won’t want to miss!  Monday, February 29th, there will be a Global Broadcast of He Named Me Malala beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST. Malala’s story is a moving and an important one.

Based on the best selling book I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban, HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.


Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.
