In honor of the Women in the World Summit coming up in New York this week, Tina Brown has some suggested reading on her regular feature on NPR, “Word of Mouth,” pertaining to women’s issues in the developing world. I’m especially interested in the Vanity Fair piece about Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani student who was shot by the Taliban after voicing demand for school access for girls.

Making sure my kid has all the educational opportunities she needs to be successful at whatever she wants to do, and making sure she knows that her gender in no way affects her ability to achieve, is a big priority for me. Imagine living in a place where girls must fight for their right to education. We are lucky humans, to have been born in a developed nation.

Thanks for the reading list, Tina.
