Angelina Jolie paid tribute to the Pakistani teen Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head at point blank range last year by the Taliban as retribution for her advocacy for girls' education. Malala survived, and has since become a prominent figure in the fight for equal access to education. 

Jolie spoke at the Women In The World summit in New York on Thursday night, and pledged $200,000 to Malala's foundation.
