This is Malala Yousufzai. She's fourteen years old, and lives in Pakistan. A few days ago she was shot in the head for speaking out against the fact that under the Pakistani Taliban, women are not educated.
I think that the Nobel Prize committee should give the Peace Prize to Malala Yousufzai. Nobody has done or sacrificed more then she has, please join me in showing your support for this extraordinary young woman.

Award Malala Yousufzai the Nobel Peace Prize
It was with some considerable outrage and shock that I viewed the latest news articles regarding the shooting of the young female activist from Swat, Pakistan, Malala Yousufzai. I think, considering her activism, courage and respect for both freedom of expression, human dignity and human rights, especially those of young women, that it would be a fine thing indeed for her to receive the Nobel Prize for her commitment to a better world for her sisters.
