Malala Yousafzai is the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, an advocate for comprehensive women’s education around the world, and the author of the brilliant memoir I Am Malala. In her new book, We Are Displaced, Malala gathers the stories of refugee women displaced by conflict, genocide, and loss. We spoke to her about the new book, her life at Oxford, and how she maintains her optimism in dark times.

With her powerful new book, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai will start with her own story of displacement as an Internally Displaced Person to show what it means to lose your home, your community, and the only world you’ve ever known. She will also share the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her various journeys to refugee camps and the cities where refugee girls and their families have settled.

In a time of immigration crises, war, and border conflicts, We Are Displaced is an important reminder from one of the world’s most famous persons who experienced displacement that everyone deserves universal human rights and a home.
