Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for promoting girls' education in her country.  Still recovering from this brutal attack, Malala continues to fight to regain her health.  32 million girls around the world are denied their right to be in the classroom and have an education.  This is something that can easily go unnoticed for those of us here in America where our daughters have this right.  That's why on November 10th there will be a global action day for Malala and all girls who are affected.  

November 10, 2012 marks one month since Malala was shot.  This is a day where we can all help stand up for Malala and these 32 million girls that want and deserve an education.  All you need to do is sign the petition here to lend your voice for education equality for all.  On November 10th former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the UN Special Envoy for Education, and Gordon's wife Sarah will deliver the petition to the Pakistani president.  Please consider signing this petition and join me in this important issue.  You can also lend your voice by tweeting with the Twitter hashtag  #IamMalala.
