Top Ten Women Who Changed the World in 2015

This list consists of powerful, smart and outgoing women who changed the world and are still alive today.

The Top Ten

1 Malala Yousafzai Malala Yousafzai Malala Yousafzai S.St is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate.

A role model to all mankind. She portrays traits what a person should be: Modest, humble, just and intelligent. She captured the hearts and minds of the people with her wise words and dutiful actions, not her body. Now that's a feminist, and a role model for today's misguided young women, who are in dire need of knowing what a true woman should strive to be

I love this teen because she is doing a favor. She stayed strong when she was shot and she was not scared to stop being an activist. I love learning about her and I learn new things about her every day. If I lived in Pakistan where she stood out I would be afraid. She was not afraid through all the things that happened to her.

It's weird how Malala is the only person who is actually being noticed by the media. They're are literally hundreds of women who have been through the same thing and believe in justice but they never get any attention. I just find it stupid how one person gets recognition and hundreds of people before her who were after the same goal don't.

Youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, wasn't silenced by a bullet, and extremely humble about her accomplishments. Need I say more? - yuki-blue
