The award is given annually by group RAW in WAR to a female human rights defender, the report added.

RAW in WAR said that Yousafzai was chosen for her courage to speak out when nobody else dared, for her strength to give a voice to the many women and girls, whose voices cannot be heard, and for her passionate belief in promoting education for girls.

She was due to receive the award in London from 104-year-old Nicholas Winton, who rescued Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, the report further said.
