Every Day is Malala Day

Malala. #theMalalaEffect share her story

What started as a Pakistani girl’s refusal to be denied an education has blossomed into a global movement.

Malala Yousafzai is the subject of a new book written by Plan Canada President and CEO, Rosemary McCarney, with Plan International. Aptly titled Every Day is Malala Day, the book shows the effect that Malala’s fight for education equality has had on girls around the world following the Taliban’s efforts to silence her.

Every Day is Malala Day is a tribute to the remarkable Malala Yousafzai, and a reminder of all the ‘other Malalas’ who are out there fighting for their right to an education. We hope the book provides an opportunity to talk about gender equality, the right of every child to an education, and how together we can all take a stand against gender-based violence.”
- Rosemary McCarney, Plan Canada President and CEO

The Malala Effect

Even at such a young age, Malala is globally recognized as a true inspiration. To launch Every Day is Malala Day and bring it to life, Plan Canada is pleased to present The Malala Effect– an art exhibit produced by artists whose work is directly inspired by the book.

While 65 million girls in developing nations are still denied the right to go to school, one girl’s voice amplified by millions of others has the power to break down barriers.
