“Even in the face of grave danger, Malala Yousafzai has shown an unwavering commitment to the rights of women, girls and all people,” Mr. Guterres said on Friday on his selection of Ms. Yousafzai for the designation.
“Her courageous activism for girls’ education has already energized so many people around the world,” he said adding that as the United Ntions’s youngest –ever Messenger of Peace, she can do even more just and peaceful world.
