Highlight of the Day: Malala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997. At the age of 15 Malala was the victim of a shooting in which she miraculously survived. The assassination attempt was in retaliation to Yousafzai’s demands that girls receive an equal education to boys. She went on to become the youngest individual to receive a Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17. She has been an activist and a prominent figure in promoting equal rights for women and girls in Pakistan, bringing hope and inspiration to women and girls around the world.

Highlight of the Day: Silvia Mendez was born on June 7th, 1936. She is of Mexican and Puerto Rican heritage. In the early 1940's Mendez was nine years old when she was experienced segregation. She was turned away from enrolling in an Orange County school in California that was for "whites only." This led her parents and other families to sue the school district and win the landmark case, Méndez v. Westminster, in 1946. This case paved the way for Brown v. Board of Education seven years later and became instrumental in ending segregation in U.S. schools. She continues to be a civil rights advocate today. In 2011, she was a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. #CivilRights #WomensHistoryMonth
