THE BRONX - Students at St. Raymond Academy, an all-girl school in the Bronx, honored a young Pakistani girl for her role in fighting for equal educational rights for women.

Malala Yousafzai is known for her activism in Pakistan and around the world. She was shot in the head and neck in 2012 by the Taliban in an assasination attempt.

The students re-enacted Yousafzai's speech that she gave at the United Nations. They also performed an interpretative dance and song.

It is the first time the students put together a performance on social justice.
