16-Year-Old Wins EU's Human Rights Prize
Malala Yousafzai, a 16-year-old activist, won the EU's Sakharov Prize for free speech after being shot in the head by the Taliban while campaigning for better rights for girls. Yousafzai had life-saving surgery in the UK after being shot a year ago and is now the recipient of what is considered Europe's top human rights award, a $65,000 prize. In an address to the United Nations General Assembly, Yousafzai vowed she would never be silenced.
