8. He Named Me Malala (2015)
Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teenager (that’s right, she is currently 18 years old) was attacked and shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking out about female education. But this incredible girl is more than just a brilliant activist fighting for women’s and children’s rights around the world, she is also a survivor, and after recovering from her wounds she is stronger than ever. She even won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for her work, making her the youngest ever recipient of this honor. This powerful documentary showcases an important and inspiring story that needs to be told.
