Malala Yousafzai’s popularity rose and she was even receiving
Females are discriminated against, mistreated, and are valued less since women and girls are not allowed to attend school and higher education.

“ In October 2012, Yousafzai was riding home from school on the bus when two Taliban members embarked and asked, ‘ Who is Malala?’ One of the gunmen then fired three shots; one bullet went through Yousafzai’s left eye socket and ended under her left shoulder. The other bullets hit two other girls who were not seriously wounded ’’ (“I am Malala” 1).

Malala has told her story and she continues to fight for education. Not only for the girls in Pakistan, but for the children and girls all
Malala Yousafzai has been an inspiration to me since I was a freshman in high school. The day her story broke was the day I realized that as an American citizen, I had privilege. No one I knew at that time has ever had to risk their lives for an education, or worry about their families lives if they persisted and went to school. Her story sparked a flame inside me, and six years later, it has yet to be put out. Women's education is a topic I care greatly about, and it is mostly due to the bravery, perseverance, and compassion Malala has shown throughout the years. She began speaking up when she was only a young girl, with the help of BBC and the encouragement of her father. Not long after she raised her voice about the injustice she saw, the
Malala Yousafzai’s is a women’s activist for youth education, but primarily for girls. On July 12th, 2013, she delivered an address at the Youth Takeover of the United Nation. This speech is powerful, eye opening and deserves to be heard. She is addressing two audiences, one being the people that follow her same belief for education, some of those people would be at this convention and the other being the people that disagree with her purpose, like the Taliban. Yousafzai was in 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan, which used to be a popular tourist destination. As of now the region has been taken into control of the Taliban. Her father is also an anti- Taliban activist and educator. She, her father and tons of others just want thing to be like they used to. Where they had a safe neighborhood and didn't have to worry about violence. She delivered a speech riddled with excellent use of rhetoric to convey her argument. Malala’s whole purpose for her fight for education of the youth is so that it will stop future violence, She displays this purpose in her speech by using outward focus, compassion and personal experience to her audiences.
Education might not be the cure of the world’s problem but it’s important to be knowledgeable. It’s important to have an education because without it, it makes a person vulnerable to be guided in the wrong direction. Not everyone believes education is important in life and especially for a woman. Malala Yousafzai tells us her story and her fight for education in her book I am Malala. She tells us about her families struggle for the right of education and not just education in general but education for woman. She was raised in Pakistan and its one the counties in which some people believe a woman should not go to school or have freedom. Education was not as easy for her as other girls around the world. Sometimes people don’t take education as a privileged but as a right, but unfortunately it’s not this case everywhere and it wasn’t the case for Malala. She was also able to see by firsthand how illiteracy can be a danger to a person and how others can take advantage of it.
