LONDON: Pakistani teenage rights activistMalala Yousafzai, who survived a Taliban assassination attempt in 2012, will go silent for 24 hours on April 17 to show solidarity with children whose voices are silenced.

“It’s our turn to affect a positive change, to stand up for equality and to empower others to join us. On 17 April, I will go silent to stand in solidarity with my peers who remain voiceless,” she told an audience of thousands of schoolchildren and teachers at the ‘WE Day’ youth empowerment event in London on Friday.
