Letter: Young activist and article about her give world hope

Thank you, Shehla Anjum, for your excellent interest and report (Compass, Oct. 25) on Malala’s character, wisdom, courage and determination to stand up, to assert herself and to speak up in opposition to the male-dominated culture of the Taliban.

Your article and her living example inspire me and give me hope the world is on course to a more just and humane world. Many of us recognize and are appreciative for your contributions.
