As a teenager, it is easy to feel lost, hide in the crowd, and then lose our voice. Malala Yousafzai inspires us to be courageous. She bravely spoke of her opinion and stood up for her education. Now it’s our turn to voice our opinion about something that we think is right. It is now our turn to take education seriously, just like what Malala
In Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb’s nonfiction book, I am Malala (2013), they promote their belief of speaking up and making a difference in the world by advocating the importance of education and communicating with words will help make the world more peaceful. The author first supports her beliefs by being a voice for girls in her country way before she was shot, by speaking through the media by becoming a BBC blogger and telling her story and fears for the future. She spoke up against the Taliban, even though they threatened her with death. Malala spoke out against the extremists who would twist the teachings of Islam in order to get what they desired. Not only does Malala speaks up about education, but she defends women’s rights. She
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.

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.
Freedom of speech is a fundamental human right. Whether or not on a college campus, people (especially college students) should have the right to speak freely. Everyone does have the right to speak freely, because it is one of the twenty-seven amendments. Colleges all around the United States are now home to many restrictions on free speech. For example, the idea and use of “free speech zones” has made its way to colleges everywhere. A “free speech zone” is a sidewalk sized place where students are allowed to speak their minds freely on college campuses. I know what you’re thinking. This sounds ridiculous. Why are there specific places for people to speak their minds? Aren’t colleges suppose to be a place where students speak their minds and learn new things? Universities should not be able to put any restrictions on free speech.
Throughout the span of the human race, many people and organization have stood up for the right of others. Some scientists raced against time to produce vaccines that saved millions if not billions of lives. On the other hand, many speakers traveled across the globe to promote individual’s freedom and rights. In wartime, more people regardless of their backgrounds worked tirelessly to save lives of many individuals who faced genocide. Undoubtedly, history has foretold that at any moment in time, people are working tremendously so that other people may have a better world to live. Regarding education, Malala Yousafzai, known as Malala, has put all her efforts in promoting education to every child living on earth. She was a target of an insurgent group, but now she is the savior of many children. Thanks to her works, many children now have an education which they have never once dreamed they would have. Her moral courage will be a legacy that she leaves for humans.
In the United States we enjoy many freedoms. There are many place throughout the world that don’t allow you to live your life with the flexibilities that a United States citizen may possess. These right are given by the Unites States constitution has made this country become pioneers of innovation, and cultural development. Having a right to express yourself and your ideals have made this the home of immigrates with the ambition to develop into major contributors in modern society. One freedom we enjoy, I would like to discuss in this paper is freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is one the world’s most sort after rights but as of lately it has been under attack stating it may cause national security issues. In this paper we will look at the development of the First Amendment and how newly enacted laws that will cause the government to label people or groups enacting this rights as extremist.
There are two related forms of oppression that interact with race and racism. This two forms have several similar ideas and several differences. This forms of oppression are and homophobia and heterosexism. The first form of oppression with race and racism is homophobia.
To the eyes of many Americans, kneeling while the anthem is being played and the flag is being shown is disrespectful. Blood and sweat has been sacrificed for our flag and for us that live in this beautiful country. These same soldiers fought for a place where we can walk safely, we can speak without fear, and for our Constitution.
Freedom of speech is one of the foundations that our founding fathers upon to make the great country we live in. Some people think that we need more limitations on this freedom then we already have or completely remove it (“Should Freedom of Speech be Restricted on College Campuses?”), but in reality that is not the truth. The truth is that we need to protect this right because there are people who have died trying to obtain and protect this right and every other right that we have in America, and to destroy it would be a waste of their sacrifice.
In modern day America, the topic of freedom of speech is widely disputed. More specifically in regards to when you are protected by our first amendment. It is extremely important to know what this right entitles as a way to protect yourself, as well as to keep yourself from looking like an idiot. For example, being banned from a social media site, such as Twitter, does not violate the constitution.¹ This is because Twitter is a private organization. This is also why you can be fired from your job if you say something incriminating on the internet.¹ The first amendment does not apply to private organizations. As well as this, you cannot be fined or punished for something such as not standing for the pledge. This is because it “is an act of political
Simply put, free speech and its integral role in free society is fading, or rather: free society itself is fading. In our homes, we sit in our leather recliners with a can of forget and a bowl of regret, our mouths wide open, our eyes peeled watching our American gods of knowledge and opinion as they place their words into our mouths, into our hearts, and into our brains. And by our gods, we learn of our true identity - our box that our features and characteristics place us in, what we should really be thinking about, and which side of the political "fiesta" that we should be falling for. Likewise, the young adults in American Colleges are being taught standards of socio-ethical appeasement and continuing these “skills” from college into their daily lives: the fabric of American Society, which is a primary factor in the end of the First Amendment right of the American public. The American population is not only controlled (socio-politically) by the desires and politicization in the industries of advertisement and entertainment but also the “corrupted” situation of the American college, which are both extending the dissolution of free speech in the United States.
“Teenage girl Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for speaking up about girls education.” This was what most headlines in October 2012 consisted of. Millions of girls are denied an education globally. Their lives are changed at such a young age as most are forced into arranged marriages. Malala wasn’t silenced by a bullet, she spoke out. Girls education is being denied around the world and is being addressed because women’s rights matter.
“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful,” once said Malala Yousafzai. This sounds like a rather unachievable fantasy, but the message Malala is trying to convey is that in times of suffering and hardship, the world is in a constant and dire need of a voice to speak up. Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, and the Dalai Lama all had a significant impact on the world, but what did they all have in common? They were all the voices of society, and most definitely succeeded in their mission of spreading peace. Furthermore, they stood up for their basic rights through the use of non-violent and peaceful methods. One of the people that stands out in our day and age as a foremost promoter of peace, is
“If Canada leads, I know the world will follow”, these are but a few of the empowering words that Malala Yousafzai spoke in the House of Commons on April 12th, 2017. Malala looked to motivate and encourage Canada, a neutral country in the worlds current affairs, to act in the plan of ensuring that girls worldwide have a right to education. To effectively portray this movement, Malala worked to relate and please Canadians throughout her speech and then concluded with a strong message to her audience in hopes of putting her words into actions. Making the headlines of many news mediums throughout Canada, Malala effectively captivated not only the members of the House of Commons, but Canada as a nation.
Today, I stand here to express my concerns about nearly 130 million girls who are out of school. As we all know, despite many advancements taken towards achieving gender equality in developing countries, there are yet many girls, who do not have access to quality education. The circumstances of those girls consist of many issues, which include early pregnancy, cost and domestic work, while terrible repercussion of standing up is encountered. Just because girls are focused to be independent to fight for themselves, are we automatically compelled to not take action on something we intuitively know is wrong? NO. It is evident that we must help women's right to education. So, today I, Malala, stand here, among one of many girls to raise my voice for those, whose voice cannot be heard.
