Malala Yousafzai and India’s Kailash Satyarthi were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their work in promoting children’s rights on Friday, October 10. Yousafzai became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. She is the first Pakistani to become a Nobel laureate since Abdus Salam who also shared the prize in 1979 with U.S. nominee Steven Weinberg for Physics.

What makes the event more thoughtful, though, is that she passed the two-year anniversary of the horrid event that tossed her and her cause onto the world stage just a day prior to the announcement.
