When 15-year-old Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, a fearless and outspoken advocate for girls' education, was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in an attempted assassination on 9 October 2012, her enemies had hoped to silence her. Instead, Malala survived, and the attempt on her life ensured that her name and her cause became known throughout the world. In the past 12 months, she has addressed the U.N. on worldwide access to education, appeared on the cover of Time magazine, and received dozens of awards and honours, including a nomination for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize.

One year on from the attack - and days before the world celebrates International Day of the Girl on 11 October - we look back at Malala's incredible year.
