This is the story of two courageous children whose bravery transcended their youth. Iqbal Masih and Malala Yousafzai were both unafraid to speak out: he, against inhumane child slavery in the carpet trade and she, for the right of girls to attend school. Both were shot by those who disagreed with them—he in 1995, she in 2012. Iqbal was killed instantly; Malala miraculously survived and continues to speak out around the world. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for her work.
