Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi have today been jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education".

"The Nobel Committee regards it as an important point for a Hindu and a Muslim - an Indian and a Pakistani - to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism,".

Malawa has become the youngest winner of the prize after surviving an assassination plot from the Taliban and campaigning across the world for the education of women in her home country. The prize doesn't come without its doubters, including from those that believe some of her stories and struggles have been fabricated, but definitely a big moment that should be celebrated and hopefully will lead into a lot more good being done for women's education to continue her campaigns.

Says the person who seems to have Sky News on 27 hours a day. Perhaps they have never mentioned her which would make my opinion of that channel fall even further. I didn't think that was possible.

They may have mentioned her but if it wasn't about a disaster, murder or politics it could have passed over me. Actually I've started watching the BBC news channel instead now. Doesn't seem as repetitive.

Malala was all over the news in late 2012 - though because doesn't fall into the media mantra of 'be afraid, Ebola is coming. IS are coming. Immigration is coming. Recession is coming', the story probably was moved on quickly from.

Anyway a very inspirational young woman and a throughly deserved winner for once, unlike Al Gore or the war mongering Barack Obama.

How was Al Gore undeserving? He did more than most to keep climate change on the agenda in the 00s.

Oh come AWN, he jumped on the nearest bandwagon available and knows very little about the science behind climate change. You could argue that a lot of the stuff in An Inconvenient Truth was inaccurate and deliberately scaremongering media-friendly rubbish that could potentially cause MORE friction and war as the states of the world point the finger at each other in the blame game of the millennium.

It was a TRAVESTY that he won such an award.

Henry Kissinger's award easily trumps that.

Malala's response to winning:



What an incredibly confident and able orator, especially for her age!
