Malala Yousafzai

Both Mary Livingstone and Chief Maneko were strong and impressive women.

Today and throughout our history there are many powerful and influential women who have made their mark – although sometimes we aren’t so good at celebrating them as we should be. Think about the women who inspire you. Who are they and what makes them so interesting and impressive?

Watch this video about the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai from BBC News.

What makes her so inspiring? What do you think motivated her to do the things she did?


We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project.
