Although, Malala could not convince the Taliban for educational equality in Islam, she was able to convince millions of people around the world to take actions against them through her struggle for educational equality powerfully due to her use of ethos, tone, and imagery. Malala Yousafzai powerfully utilizes ethos as a rhetorical strategy to convey her message for educational equality by building her credibility in Islam. “And my school uniform-my white shalwar and blue kamiz-is on a peg on the wall, waiting for me” (Yousafzai 1). Malala Yousafzai builds her credibility by introducing herself as a student in Islam, which portrays that she lives there and is educated and furthermore, makes Malala a reliable source to inform the audience about the enormous problems in Islam. The rhetorical strategy, ethos, is
Malala Malala Yousafzai a young teenager was on the brink of death thanks to her advocating.Women's rights are something not given to all girls in her country, Pakistan.For that sole reason she was shot, for speaking up for her rights.Therefore, by using juxtaposition to compare the Pakistan people to the American lifestyle, imagery to intensify the endeavor of women and young girls, and pathos to invigorate the world to help attain educational rights for these girls . In the small city of swat is where Malala is found to be living she involves this to her use of imagery.For example she states “When i close my eyes, i see my bedroom.The bed is unmade,my fluffy blanket in a heap, because i've rushed out for school, late for an exam” (Yousafzai pg 1).Notably, in this quote Malala creates a picture of a tranquil yet hectic environment that forms her whole life. On the other hand she makes it comprehensible to her audience that she is a young imperative teenage girl that lives with the struggles of
The Taliban took away women’s voice, vision, and mobility; the United States of America’s removal of the Taliban, brought back rights for women. The ISAF repaired Kabul from the Taliban’s impacts on embassies, schools, and hospitals. Laila went from getting an education, to being beaten for walking unaccompanied outside, to teaching female children. The political influences caused women rights to fluctuate between positive and negative
When we reflected on the stories of Someday My Elders Will be Proud and In Search of Sangam we came together as a group and reflected on each story. In the first story Someday My Elders Will be Proud.A native American woman named Jean from Bismarck, North Dakota, tells the story of how she experienced two completely different worlds. She talks about how her mother raised her and her three brothers after their father left them when she was very young. When the children were young, their mother would go to work and their drunk, abusive uncle would care for them. The abuse from her uncle left emotional scars.
Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani woman who only wanted an education, was obligated to view her life at its worst and at the same time, view the desire and dreams of girls who fight for their education that they have been denied. Yousafzai has glimpsed and lived through a world that no American child could have ever imagined and cherishes an education what no child would have imagined losing. Nonetheless, through her novel, I Am Malala, Yousafzai has put into effect an extraordinary and a determined message to the world of a sincere love for education and peace. Malala utilizes strong repetition, vivid imagery, and powerful ethos in her biography to show kids how if you believe in something you fight for it and never give up. Malala’s use of repetition is very strong and something that not only makes her biography better but it makes things stand out.

" Recreating an imaginative geography of west versus east, us versus Muslims, cultures in which first ladies give speeches versus others where women shuffle around silently in burqas." Ibid.784 She argues that this concern is artificial. Much like Cultural ecology it focus on the fact their there is a problem without any relation to history or a solution to the problem that would work to improve the problem within the realm of the community being painted as a victim that needs saving. Lila Abu-Lughod concludes her point with saying people should be suspicious whenever messy history is reimagined to paint a different narrative. "we need to be suspicious when neat cultural icons are plastered over messier historical and political narratives, so we need to be wary when lord Cromer in British-ruled Egypt, French ladies in Algeria, and laura bush, all with military troops behind them, claim to be saving or liberating Muslim women."
Freedom of speech is a quite difficult topic in Pakistan and soon she became a target for the Taliban. She was injured by the Taliban and had to get treatment in a British hospital. She had international speeches and has won many prizes for human rights and equality (won the Nobel peace prize in 2014). The speech on education she had back in summer 2013 was for the UN General Assembly and it went viral. What she wanted to achieve is simply that she lays down the brutal facts and people of great power like the UN Assembly follows with resolutions and permanent changes.
Before and after being shot, Malala was still fighting for the same reason, education. But after being injured her support has changed drastically. The United Nations Envoy for Global Education started a petition to let every girl have a place in schools. Malala quoted in her book “I Am Malala” that “[t]hey thought that the bullets would silence us. But they failed.
This is an example of herself symbolizing justice and education equality for she directly affirmed that she represents the silent and yet loud voices and hearts of oppressed girls who want the education that they are deprived from. Nonetheless, Malala’s symbolism of herself representing peace critically affects the audience’s philosophy of morals. As observed by Malala’s statement, “If you hit a Talib with your shoe, there is no difference between him and you. You must not treat others with cruelty. You must fight them with peace and dialogue” (Yousafzai, pg.
