Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 for advocating girls’ right to education, and Indian children’s right activist Kailash Satyarthi won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday. Yousafzai, 17, becomes the youngest Nobel Prize winner by far. She won the 95th Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for their work promoting education rights for children in a year that has been anything but peaceful.

Malala is one of the two recipients of the coveted prize. Kailash Satyarthi, 60, is also set to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian Nobel Committee cited the two “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”
