In this intimate and extraordinary memoir, Ziauddin Yousafzai, the father of Malala, gives a moving account of fatherhood and his lifelong fight for equality – proving there are many faces of feminism. “Whenever anybody has asked me how Malala became who she is, I have often used the phrase. ‘Ask me not what I did but what I did not do. I did not clip her wings’” For over twenty years, Ziauddin Yousafzai has been fighting for equality – first for Malala, his daughter – and then for all girls throughout the world living in patriarchal societies. Taught as a young boy in Pakistan to believe that he was inherently better than his sisters, Ziauddin rebelled against inequality at a young age. And when he had a daughter himself he vowed that Malala would have an education, something usually only given to boys, and he founded a school that Malala could attend. Then in 2012, Malala was shot for standing up to the Taliban by continuing to go to her father's school, and Ziauddin almost lost the very person for whom his fight for equality began. Let Her Fly is Ziauddin’s journey from a stammering boy growing up in a tiny village high in the mountains of Pakistan, through to being an activist for equality and the father of the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and now one of the most influential and inspiring young women on the planet. Told through intimate portraits of each of Ziauddin’s closest relationships – as a son to a traditional father; as a father to Malala and her brothers, educated and growing up in the West; as a husband to a wife finally learning to read and write; as a brother to five sisters still living in the patriarchy – Let Her Fly looks at what it means to love, to have courage and fight for what is inherently right. Personal in its detail and universal in its themes, this landmark book shows why we must all keep fighting for the rights of girls and women everywhere.

It was August 2004 when the white dove hit the windshield of my car as I was driving home from church. Did it give up its life to save me or was it foretelling my continued misery and/or death? Little did I know then, but this was only the beginning of my descent into hell. The Patient No One Wanted is about my exposure to toxic mold in my classroom at the high school where I taught, and it describes the way in which the exposure has affected me over the years. The title refers to my endless search for a doctor to help me. The school was closed for six weeks because parents had complained that their children were getting sick from mold. We held classes at the Bristol International Speedway while the school was supposedly being remediated. However, conditions were even worse when we returned. The school had a flat roof that held water and was conducive to growing algae, which in turn grew mold. Over the years the roof continually leaked, and ceiling tiles became soaked and fell to the floor. In addition, buckets had to be placed in the halls to collect water, and black debris ran down the walls. Many “modern,” airtight schools have a similar moisture problem. Having been a biology teacher and considering my exposure, I researched the subject of toxic mold extensively and corresponded with several renowned experts, such as Dr. Harriet Burge, who helped pioneer the field of aerobiology (study of airborne microorganism) and developed and ran the program at Harvard for ten years. I also received feedback from Dr. Ruth Etzel, the director of EPA’s office of Children’s Health Protection. Dr. Etzel was the chief investigator into the cause of bleeding lungs in a cluster of infants from Cleveland, Ohio. The cause turned out to be the black mold, Stachybotrys. I want the world to know what toxic mold can do to one’s health. Along with teachers, the children that attend these contaminated schools are among our most valuable resources for the future, and they are in jeopardy!

Read Sherri L. Smith's posts on the Penguin Blog Ida Mae Jones dreams of flight. Her daddy was a pilot and being black didn’t stop him from fulfilling his dreams. But her daddy’s gone now, and being a woman, and being black, are two strikes against her. When America enters the war with Germany and Japan, the Army creates the WASP, the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots—and Ida suddenly sees a way to fly as well as do something significant to help her brother stationed in the Pacific. But even the WASP won’t accept her as a black woman, forcing Ida Mae to make a difficult choice of “passing,” of pretending to be white to be accepted into the program. Hiding one’s racial heritage, denying one’s family, denying one’s self is a heavy burden. And while Ida Mae chases her dream, she must also decide who it is she really wants to be.
