Malala Yousafzai inspires US curriculum encouraging advocacy

THE 16-year-old Pakistani shot by the Taliban because she wanted education for girls has inspired a new school curriculum encouraging advocacy in an American university.

USA Today reports George Washington University will create a multimedia program that will work alongside a book released by teenager Malala Yousafzai.

The college and high school instruction will be free and focus on the importance of a woman's voice and political extremism, the university said.
