education

There are a total of four published works exploring the Shawbridge boys’ farm, or as it’s known to most who spend time there, The Farm. The fourth and most recent is the personal story of a young girl in the early ‘80s who became a ward of Quebec’s juvenile system and spent her teenage years chasing her freedom at nearly any cost.

Malala is not alone. She is one child among hundreds victimized in conflict zones year after year. However, this girl’s determination and devotion to education allowed her to transform what could have been a symbol of a child’s weakness and of woman’s oppression into a symbol of contestation.
