Stand with Malala Yousafzai and show the Taliban that there's no way they can stop us girls from getting an education. Ever.

1. When there’s a woman on the cover, she’s almost always with a man — or in a swimsuit.
When a woman is featured on the SI cover, she’s most often either in a swimsuit or accompanied by a man — like UConn’s Diana Taurasi with Emeka Okafor in 2003 or UNC’s Rashanda McCants with Tyler Hansbrough in 2008. Covers featuring actual female athletes by themselves are exceedingly rare, with only the U.S. gymnastics team (i2012) and Hope Solo (20011) getting the call in recent years.
Here’s a quick snapshot of what happened this past Monday when we got to spend the day at the United Nations and meet #Malala Yousafzai! We’re so grateful for the opportunity and still in shock over the fact that we got to meet our hero!! More news/blogs/pics etc from our experience will be up in the coming week— stay tuned! And share #GIRLWITHABOOK with your friends— girls’ education needs the biggest microphone it can get its hands on!
A perfect day gets better and better! Can’t believe we just met @malalafund & her family ..and in just a half hour we’ll be hearing her speak on #mdgmomentum at the #sgmalalachat ! (at United Nations Headquarters)
A reminder that TOMORROW is the day! At 11am Est #Malala & Sec-Gen Ban Ki-moon will host an interactive discussion on the #MDGs & #500daysofaction . We’ll be at the #UN (!!) and you can participate from home! Submit your questions using #SGMalalaChat & follow along at: http://webtv.un.org
