Malala Yousafzai graduated from Oxford University with a philosophy, politics and economics degree on Friday, nine years after being shot by the Taliban as she campaigned for girls to be to be educated in her native Pakistan.  Malala was seen posing in her hat and gown as she stood by the university, as well as alongside her new husband Asser Malik.

 

 

Congratulations to her, such an amazing life journey faced with such strength on her part.

What an inspiration she is to young women., just think, if she hadn't been saved from her ordeal . She wouldn't have had the opportunities in Pakistan.

Civil Liberties Act of 1988

The act granted each surviving internee US$20,000 in compensation, equivalent to $38,000 in 2019, with payments beginning in 1990.

For example ... 

a fifth case of the Omicron variant detected in NSW, a woman in her 30s who arrived in Sydney on Saturday, before new travel restrictions were in place. She had travelled to at least two southern African countries prior to arriving. It is understood she has visited several venues on the NSW Central Coast while infectious.
