Summary
"A moving and inspirational story with a deeply personal look into the Yousafzai family, "Let her fly" traces Ziauddin Yousafzai's life journey. From an unconfident, stammering little boy living in a mud house in a mountainous region of Pakistan to a man who has broken with regressive social norms, Yousafzai has proven that there are many faces of feminism. As an educator, a family man, and an activist, Yousafzai has championed positive changes in all aspects of his life, be it empowering his daughter, Malala, to be a global leader, fighting for girls' education around the world, or teaching his sons the value of equality. With humor and sincerity, Yousafzai describes his life in Pakistan before the Talibanization of the Swat Valley; through scenes of his sons, Khusal and Atal, flying kites on the roof of their home; to his progressive partnership with his wife, Toor Pekai, and their challenge of raising children in an unfamiliar country. After Malala was shot by the Taliban, the Yousafzai family was completely uprooted from Pakistan and forced to start over in the United Kingdom. Now Yousafzai expresses the complex pain and joy of his return, six years later, to his beautiful homeland. "Let her fly" is an intimate family portrait by the father of one of the most remarkable leaders in the world today. For the first time, readers will learn how an ordinary man from rural Pakistan started a school with the express mission to educate young women for a bright future and became an activist and a global leader in his own right. Ziauddin and Toor Pekai have set a singular example for parents who hope to empower their children to make a difference. "Let her fly" will resonate with anyone who has ever cared for a child as Ziauddin Yousafzai shares what he's learned from his children and what he hopes to teach the world"--Dust jacket
