New York, USA | July 5, 2018 — Malala Fund is proud to launch our new digital publication and newsletter, Assembly, a by girls, for girls outlet seeking to educate and inspire the next generation of female leaders, ages 12-25.
Malala Yousafzai explains that her early activism in Swat Valley inspired the platform, “I began blogging about girls’ education at age 11. Today I help other girls tell their stories.” Assembly will amplify girls’ voices through original articles, videos, photographs and artwork focusing on the issues girls care about. We’ll profile girl-led initiatives around the world and showcase how girls are leading their communities.
The first issue features a short graphic novel “The Adventures of Rajni” written and illustrated by two girls in India, a profile of a 13-year-old motocross star from Zimbabwe and girls around the world will share what books they’re reading now.
"Assembly is a space for girls around the world to share their stories, ideas and accomplishments — and it's an opportunity for all of us to learn from these young leaders,” said Assembly’s editor, Tess Thomas. “We're excited to provide girls with a platform for their voices and our readers have already started pitching incredible ideas for Assembly!"
Assembly will go out on the first and third Thursday of every month — a monthly version is also available in Arabic, French and Spanish.
