National Geographic Abu Dhabi will dedicate sizable share of its airtime this month to woman-specific subjects, notably for the occasion of Mother’s day and International Women’s day.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, the internationally acclaimed documentary He Named Malala was premiered on National Geographic on March 8. Renowned documentary director Davis Guggenheim (Waiting for Superman) recounts how Malala, her father and family, bore the toll of fighting for the sake of education. The documentary takes the viewer into a detailed journey of this one-in-a-million girl’s life: her relationship with her father who inspired the love of education in her, her personal life at home, leading up to her emotionally-charged speech at the United Nations.
