The Emirates Literature Foundation releases

The Emirates Literature Foundation has today released the full recording of Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2021 session with Malala. The session is available on the Foundation’s YouTube channel for free with Arabic subtitles.

The world’s youngest Nobel laureate, Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai never stopped advocating for girls’ right to education, despite the attempt on her life by the Taliban in 2012 in her home, Pakistan’s Swat Valley. In this conversation between Emirati moderator Alia Al Mansoori and Malala, now a fresh graduate from Oxford in politics, philosophy, and economics, they delve into Malala’s life and her never-ending fight for the eradication of systematic exclusion of children and girls from education. Malala is an example that all it takes is courage to muster a voice — a revolutionary voice.

The recording is the third in the digital series of recorded sessions to be released on the Emirates Literature Foundation YouTube channel. Subscribers will get notified when new videos are uploaded.

The 13th Emirates Airline Festival of Literature (29 January-13 February) hosted international authors, including Elif Shafak, Amin Maalouf and Lemn Sissay, Huda Hamed, Abdulaziz Baraka Sakin and many more.

The Festival was held with the support of Founding Partners Emirates Airline and the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), the Emirate’s dedicated authority for heritage, arts, and culture.
