At just 16, she has experienced enough pain and struggle to fill a lifetime. Yet she remains defiant – and above all, fearless.
On Monday, before a rapt and adoring audience at Glamour's Women of the Year awards in New York, Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai shared her dream for a better world for children through education – preaching bravery against the forces of oppression that just a year ago tried to murder her.
"We must not be afraid of anything. We must not be afraid of anything!" Yousafzai said. "I believe that a gun has no power at all. Because a gun can only take life. But a pen can save lives."

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons – and not, as had been widely believed, Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban last October for advocating education for girls – won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for working to eliminate the scourge that has haunted generations from World War I to the battlefields of Syria.
The OPCW had not figured prominently in this year's Nobel speculation. As for Yousafzai, "She is an outstanding woman and I think she has a bright future and she will probably be a nominee next year or the year after that," Jagland, the committee chairman, told the Associated Press.
He declined to comment on whether she had been considered for this year's award.

Oct. 9, 2012, was the end of another school day for Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai as she sat on her bus in her hometown of Mingora in Pakistan's Swat Valley.
But within minutes, one Taliban gunman stopped the vehicle while another climbed aboard and shot her in the head. The reason: She was an outspoken advocate for girls' education.
"My world has changed so much," the 16-year-old, whose new memoir I Am Malala was published Tuesday, tells PEOPLE. "But I have not."
