Abstract
July 12, 2013 at United Nations headquarters, located in New York, an unusual visitor spoke to the audience. On the podium, which had seen so many prominent politicians and public figures, there was a girl, who celebrated her sixteenth birthday that day - Malala Yousafzai. Wrapped from head to toe in a pink shawl, from which, as from a cocoon, peeped her thin face, she spoke to the audience, which included UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. calling them «brothers and sisters». She talked about the fact that a quarter of girls and women living in the world still do not have access to primary education, that in her native Pakistan, the desire to learn could cost the girl her life. She finished her address with the words which ended all the world press repeats today: “One child, one teacher, one book and one pencil can change the world”.
