On the occasion of International Woman’s Day, Apple has struck a multi-year deal with female education rights advocate and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai to produce original content for Apple TV Plus.
Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai is teaming up with Apple TV Plus to bring empowering content such as documentaries, dramas, children’s shows, and other material that will support women, young people, writers, and artists.
“I believe in the power of stories to bring families together, forge friendships, build movements, and inspire children to dream,” said Malala Yousafzai. “And I couldn’t ask for a better partner than Apple to help bring these stories to life. I’m grateful for the opportunity to support women, young people, writers, and artists in reflecting the world as they see it.”
Apple previously partnered with Yousafzai to support girls’ education and was Malala Fund’s initial Laureate partner.
Yousafzai was born in Pakistan, she was attacked by the Taliban after becoming a vocal critic as the group obstructed girls from attending school. At the age of 15, she was shot in the head while riding a bus home from school by the group.
