BBC 100 Women: The girl known as the 'Syrian Malala'

Muzzon Al-Mellehan is a 17-year-old Syrian who fled war in her homeland in 2013.

Muzzon and her family have lived in refugee camps in Jordan for two years, where she has been dubbed the 'Malala of Syria' for her campaign to keep Syrian girls like her in the camp's makeshift school, rather than being married off.

She talks to the BBC 100 Women season about her campaign and what life is like for young girls in refugee camps.
