This is what a good role model for girls looks like.

Malala Yousafzai is the feminist voice of our age.

The 16-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl, who was shot by the Taliban two years ago for fighting for her right to education, appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart after winning the EU’s human rights award, the Sakharov Prize.

The whole interview is incredible, but the best bit is definitely when Jon Stewart asks her what she would say to a member of the Taliban:

I will tell him how important education is and that “I even want education for your children as well,” and I will tell him, “that’s what I want to tell you, now do what you want.”

Malala is also in the running for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.
