“I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school. All I want is an education,” said Malala Yousafzai, Pakistani activist for female education. In today's society, many people don’t realize how grateful they should be for the education they receive. Even the slightest education is much more than people were receiving just three centuries ago, and even more than people in countries besides the United States of America. In specifics, women and African Americans were once unable to pursue any form of education in the United States, along with many other ethnicities.
Activist, Malala Yousafzai in her book “I Am Malala,” delineates that the Taliban were going around depriving young women from their education and how she stands up and fights for young women and herself to stay and go to school. Malala’s purpose is to exude the idea that education is a basic human right and that no one should be deprived from it. She adopts a sentimental tone in order to get to her audience. In her book she uses many emotional appeals, logical appeals, she uses credibility, and imagery. Malala stood up for what she believed in, she may be inspiring her readers to never give in to something they don’t think is right.
The novel “I am Malala” conflicts a lot with the beliefs of the world right now. The Taliban was the main focus of the text as it was the main reason behind Malala and her country’s pain. The conflicts with my view of the world is very similar and very different at the same time. I agree with Malala’s beliefs about education right. I believe that education should be equally given to all the children no matter what gender they are, how old they are, where they live and what’s their status. All people should have the right to go school without being afraid. In the quote, “One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” This means if we all have the knowledge and education the world would be a better place in the future. Without education we wouldn’t have the capability of interpreting things, building a perspective of looking at life. It helps us discover ourselves and our environment to help us make educated choices in the future. Therefore it is vital for every person to have a good education.
The key components of Malala Yousafzai’s speech revolve not only on verbal and nonverbal forms of communication, but also on the depth of her message. She took this opportunity to address the world leaders about the importance of education, especially that of those females in Middle-Eastern countries who are subject to the misogynistic views of a predominantly male-governed society. The clarity of her message, as well as the manner in which she delivers it, attest to the effectiveness of her speech.
It began as an ordinary day in Mingora, Pakistan, for a young girl returning home from school on her school bus. Suddenly, a masked gunman rushed into the bus and shouted, “Who is Malala?” Her friends on the bus looked back at her, and in the blink of an eye she was shot on the left side of her face. This incident was the spark that ignited a call for change in education around the world. Malala Yousafzai was the face of this change. She made significant contributions to female education rights by being an education activist and urging children to speak out and fight for their rights. She forever changed the lives of Pakistani girls who today benefit from free education and resources with numerous schools around their country.
Females are discriminated against, mistreated, and are valued less since women and girls are not allowed to attend school and higher education. There are approximately 35 million girls not enrolled in elementary school. This explains why two-thirds of illiterate people over the age of 15 are females. Malala Yousefszai is an advocate for girls’ education all over the world. We learned that she was shot by the Taliban for standing up for education when we had to watch the video where she was on The Daily Show. Malala said that men don't want women to get an education, because then women would become more powerful. Having an education brings power. Her father was a great encouragement for her because he spoke out
Girls make up more than 54% of the uneducated population and it’s because if women were educated they would understand how unjust their way of living is and would stand up for themselves. Malala Yousafzai from Pakistani stood up for herself and her education and as a result got shot on a bus ride to school one day in October of 2012. But after speaking out and traveling to various seminars to project her knowledge of the conditions of living she was born into to everyone she was awarded the ‘2014 Nobel Peace Prize’ just last year. It makes you wonder how many people are being starved of education and suppressed of a well-deserved
The right to education is one important fundamental justice that everyone should have, but most times that right is denied. There 's many reasons why people, states or countries may not take education seriously. Pakistan is one country that has the most curtailment on education towards women. Malala Yousafazi became a young activist, she stood up for her people in Pakistan to restore the rights of education to women. Her journey began when she was just the age of fifteen; she was shot on her head near the school bus by the Taliban in 2012. After her surgery recovery, she addressed a speech to the youth in New York on July 12th. In 2013, Malala and her father co-founded the "Malala Fund" in supporting young girls like her. Malala accepted the Nobel Peace Prize on December tenth, 2014 with Indian children 's rights. She bravely continues to work hard and strive for education justice so that, one day, every child will receive an education.
The motif of education appears very early on in this biography as Malala expresses her love for education and her desire to be the smartest in her class. However, restrictions to the right to an education causes the motif to develop. When the Taliban kept females from attending school using threats, Malala states, that education is “for every boy and every girl in the world” and “is my right”. This only drove Malala into her continuation into the fight for equality in education to fight ignorance, increasing the importance of this motif as a movement. The final message that sums up this motif and a major point of this story is the importance for females to gain an education in order oppose ignorance and oppressors.
Across the world people think of Malala Yousafzai as one of the most revolutionary women in the world for her stance against heresy and gender discrimination. She has showed through example that she is willing to give her life in the defense of her beliefs regarding women’s rights to education. Malala is an equal rights activist; she continually fights for women to have the same rights as all other people. Malala has endured a long and dangerous path to make people aware of the discrimination and dangers that women are facing in Pakistan and all over the world. Her famous journey and non-violent methods has had a profound effect and has resulted in the world taking a more active part in her fight for equal rights and women 's education.
Without education for girls, they are at a disadvantage. For example, “Education had been a great gift for him [Ziauddin]. He believed that lack of education was the root of all problems. Ignorance allowed politicians to fool people and bad administrators to be reelected.” (Yousafzai 41) Malala’s father, Ziauddin believes that without education, people are easily fooled. People are at a disadvantage in society. He wishes that just like he has education, everyone else should to help resolve Pakistan’s governmental problems. “As we crossed the the Malakand Pass, I saw a young girl selling
“The first thing I thought when I came round was, Thank God I’m not dead.” These are the words of Malala Yousafzai after being shot in the head on her way to school in the beautiful Swat Valley located inside Pakistan. In I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and Was Shot By The Taliban by Malala Yousafzai, there are many cases of inequality in the education of men and women. Malala and her peers make an attempt to change the way people think about girls and education in a country where trying to get education could lead to pain and suffering. The fact of the matter is - education is not equal to men and women.
First, in Malala Yousafzai’s memoir, I Am Malala, girls and women are treated unfairly such as girls are not allowed to attend school like boys are. Females are viewed as lower than males in her society. Matter of fact, with the birth of a baby girl others “have only sympathy for the mother” (Yousafzai 19). When girls are born no one celebrates like they do little boys only sadness is brought. In Yousafzai’s region fathers believe women are only here on earth to take care of house: “She doesn’t need an education to run a house” (Yousafzai 20). The men in her village often believe why waste education on someone who “doesn’t need”(Yousafzai 20) it. Malala fought for
“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” This statement from the book I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai indicates the issue that women all over the globe have faced injustice. They have been taken for granted, limited to certain extents, or sometimes have taken their own rights for granted--which causes the lack of prosperity. People in some lands take for granted having an education while others are striving to get one. However, Malala Yousafzai stands up and speaks for women's right to have an education, giving the introverted female a powerful voice. This message conveys to readers the importance of Yousafzai's influential voice and journey that changed the world.
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.
