Born in the Swat District of Pakistan on July of 1997, Malala was destine to change the world. Her father named her after the famous Pashtun Heroine, Malalai. Malalai’s legend was that she inspired the Afghan army to defeat the British in 1880, one of the biggest battles of the Second Anglo-Afgan War. Being named after a hometown hero, Malala has lived up to her name. Her father is a leading education advocate for young women, making him an easy target for the Taliban. The Taliban is against women’s education, and during this period of time they ran Malala’s hometown. Due to her father’s prominent role in advocating for women’s equality, the Taliban targeted Malala’s family. In 2012 Malala was voted by the Taliban to be murdered. Their unsuccessful
October 9, 2012, marked a day in Malala’s life that she would never forget. That was the day that she was shot by a Taliban gunman in the head on her way home from school. Ever since Malala was little she contradicted the Taliban’s demand of young girls not being able to receive an education. This revolt led to the
Malala Yousafzai is well known for her acts towards Women’s Rights due to the factors caused by the Taliban people. Malala (Biographyonline, Malala) was a regular Pakistan school girl when the Taliban started enforcing rules and restrictions against women. Women were no longer allowed to listen to music, receive education, or go shopping. If they did, they’d be punished by the Taliban. Malala loved school and refused to cower in fear like the rest of her classmates and community. Malala formed a secret blog with BBC expressing her feelings about how unfair women were being treated. Malala was then targeted by the Taliban and shot in the head. Malala suffered a coma, but
Malala Yousafzai is a teenage girl from Swat Valley, Pakistan. As a child she enjoyed learning and valued her education, but that was soon limited by the Taliban. The Taliban invaded and conquered where Malala lived and imposed strict rules such as, women may no longer attend school to get an education and there shall be little to no use of the internet. Malala refused to obey their rules and continued to go to the school her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai owned. Malala also began to speak out against the Taliban using a BBC blog; she was featured in a documentary for the New York Times which made her a target of the Taliban. In 2013 Malala was shot twice while on a school bus waiting to go home by a Taliban soldier. She was in critical condition
Malala Yousafzai is very courageous and extraordinary. Although, there were times where she wasn’t perfect. Malala was very extraordinary by speaking out against the Taliban’s rule of females not being able to attend school. Malala completed many interviews and emphasized how important education was. This was unthinkable to do at the time because the Taliban would kill you for speaking against them. In one interview on a BBC Urdu talk show, she said “How dare the Taliban take away by basic right to education” (Yousafzai 142). Another extraordinary act of Malala was writing a diary to show what it was like living with the Taliban in control. It was very dangerous because if the Taliban found out it was her, they would kill her. She had to write

In 2006 and 2007 more than thirty percent of women and girls dropped out of school in Pakistan due to speeches that were given over an illegal FM radio station by Mullah Fazlullah, a Taliban militant, who was against women’s education. The Taliban continued threatening and attacking women who tried to get an education and then attacked schools, burning many of them to the ground making them completely irreparable. In January of 2015, an official ban was issued in the Swat Valley that prevented any women from receiving an education in the area. Some women still continued trying to go to school and gain an education in secret, despite the ban.(Washington Times) One of the biggest leaders in this was 10-year-old Malala Yousfazai. Malala was born in 1997, in Mingora, a town in the Swat District of Pakistan.
“We were scared, but our fear was not as strong as our courage” was said by Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani woman who stood up for what she believed it despite the multiple threats against her. A Hall of Fame is creating a “bravery” award, that will be given to a person who best embodies this trait. Malala Yousafzai is receiving this award because even with a death threat, and after being shot in the head, she continued to advocate for girls’ rights to education.
Have you ever thought that girls in some countries do not get treated fairly? Well that’s true in Pakistan and this one girls changed this forever…. Malala Yousafzai is a young teenage girl activist who has changed girls and her life forever. When Malala was young she had a diary that she wrote things about her life in.
Both of my parents were born in Afghanistan, a country where education is predominantly restricted to women. Extremists control the country, and consequently force young girls to stay home, and in their opinion, maintain an honorable reputation. In a country such as Afghanistan—young girls will get attacked, by getting acid thrown in their face for wanting an education. The thought of a strong, educated woman seems to threaten the ego of these fanatical men. When people ask where my family is from, I am silenced, ashamed even. How can I relate myself to a country where women are treated as less of a human being? An example, among many would include the tragedy of Malala Yousafzai, an innocent 15-year-old girl who was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen, her “crime” was that she had spoken up about girls rights to an education. Malala is a prime representation that women are treated viciously for simply wanting an education. She is just one of many who face these types of realities every day. Countries like Afghanistan need a revolution to get rid of the barbaric culture towards women, and children. Not the type of revolution that has been seen historically, but rather an intellectual revolution that fights against injustice brought by the traditional ideologies and one that promotes
Young women from all around the world live in poverty with no hope. Many people don’t even consider this. These young women are now getting an amazing opportunity because of a young teenage girl with a dream. Malala Yousafzai born in Mingora Pakistan, achieved so much in her few years of fighting for women's rights. In America, women's rights are NOT a big issue but in other countries less fortunate, that is not the case. She has not only made a difference in the lives of young women but also she has raised awareness across the globe. Through all her tireless efforts she never gave up her dream of giving girls an education. Hope has been given to young women everywhere thanks to Malala. Miracles have been made even in the smallest of
It’s hard to believe the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner had to fight for her education. Malala Yousafzai’s father would become a major contribution to her becoming a successful activist. While she was not the first education activist she is arguably the most well known activist of her kind, especially after she survived a bullet to the head. Malala has already made a huge contribution to education activism. She is already a name recognized by many. Malala Yousafzai is often regarded as a present day hero for most because she is an excellent public speaker, a survivor of an assassination attempt, and a nobel peace prize recipient.
Firstly, Malala Yousafzai, a hard-working, young woman who tries everyday to make a positive impact on the perspective people see girls. She has appeared on quite a few talk shows such as “The Ellen Show” and “The Daily Show”. Also, she has given many speeches about girls rights, a major issue in our society. She has talked about many disadvantages, especially what happens in her country, about education problems, and also, what they have to wear. She had talked about the environment she grew up in and how is the religion is very strict in her country. Her backstory includes a very harsh environment and unfair rules. She got inspired to stick up for what’s right and she became fearless. She started to give speeches from the day she discovered the feel on what girls have to go through in her country.
My nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize is Malala Yousafzai. Ms. Yousafzai was born on July 17, 1997 in Mingora, Pakistan. Even from an early age Malala was an active advocate for girls’ education, which resulted in a death threat by the Taliban. On October 9,2012 she was shot by a gunman on her way home from school. She survived and is continuing to speak out on the importance that education holds. With a growing platform Malala has used it to get her message out regarding girls’ education. Malala Yousafzai should receive the Nobel Peace Prize because she has recognized that a majority of the population in poor countries is young people. Having recognized this, Malala has taken it upon herself to see to it that woman’s rights are respected
