She said:

I think it is a good question and I have been asked this many times. What can men do? What can boys do? I think it is important for men to understand what is it that is good for their daughters, for their wives, for their sisters. Thinking about this and how they should treat other women as well. Women don’t need any extra training or any other extra skills. All they need is no one standing in their way in allowing them to achieve their dreams – no one stopping them. Men’s contribution in that would be really helpful to allow women just to follow their dreams. My father says, don’t ask what I did for my daughter, ask me what I did not do. I did not clip her wings.

In the past five years, Ms. Yousafzai has used funds (reaching $6 million) raised by her charity and the money from her Nobel Peace Prize to build schools in Pakistan and promote education programs for girls in Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and countries that house Syrian refugees.
