Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi share Nobel Peace Prize

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2014 is awarded to India's Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai for their struggles against the suppression of children and for young people's rights, including the right to education.

Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, said, "Children must go to school, not be financially exploited."

Yousafzai came to global attention after she was shot in the head by the Taliban - two years ago Thursday - for her efforts to promote education for girls in Pakistan. Since then, after recovering from surgery, she has taken her campaign to the world stage, notably with a speech last year at the United Nations.

Satyarthi, age 60, has shown great personal courage in heading peaceful demonstrations focusing on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain, the committee said.

    Its about time that the rest of the world learns about the expolitation of women forced into endentured slavery loosely called marriage in India. And how the children are exploited for monitary gains there. Its rampant in that one paticular area encompassing northern-western India and the Pakistan to the center of it. Women are no better than farm animals in treatment. They are wanted for only few things. Forced servitude to another family by being BOUGHT by the boys parents and calling it marriage. Having a dozen male babies. And working for as much as 20 hours a day at whim of the husbands family. All for a rupee thats essentialy WORTHLESS money to the rest of world markets. And they have NERVE to claim the worlds largest democracy? Worlds largest con artists is the truth. Keep this in prespective. Next time a Indian claims is rich by so-n-so rupees made per week.. A high school dropout at McDonalds working minimum wage is better qualified for job.. And makes a LOT more money than their engineers do..!

    Congradulations to both of them. Must realy get under the skin of those who are exploiting women and children. A particular type who scream sharia law which is nothing but forced slavery to women. And the Indian males who are after nothing but worthless rupee's and a cave man caste status.. Some even had the nerve to try on Yahoo Answers asking where they could BUY a american or western wife!! So they could up their "caste" and such..! The civilized world has been out of that for 400 years or better. Women are companions.. Helpers.. The other half of a pair design.. Children are a blessing.. Our decendants.. Not a money opertunity. Thats the truth that the cave man cant comprehend.. And thats the basis of a democracy.. Instead of a dictatorship..
