In the book I Am Malala, Malala Yousafzai explains the struggles of her hometown, Sway Valley, and the problems that occur in Islam. One of the enormous problems in Islam was the fact that Women were not allowed to have an education and furthermore, were not allowed to be even seen outside. In Islam, it is extremely hard for women to do anything besides staying home and if they were caught outside without a burqa or a niqab, they could be killed. Malala Yousafzai was torn with these new laws that were implanted by the Taliban which made her take action against them with her prominent words and leading her to becoming an international symbol of peaceful protest. 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 was born on July 12, 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan. Ever since she was a little girl, she knew that their was more to her life than being an everyday housewife. She wanted to go to school. The Taliban feels that women should not have the right to go to school. She became an advocate for young women to have a right for an education which then resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her. No one thought the Taliban would hurt a child but one day a man shot Malala in the head in her school bus while she was coming home from school. Thankfully she survived, and continued to speak out about her the right for girls to have access to an education. After the Taliban started attacking young girls, Malala decided to give a speech. She named her speech, "How dare the Taliban take away my basic right to education?" Malala did not stand for such cruelty from the Taliban. She wrote blogs about her life, gave speeches, she did whatever she had to do to be heard. Just like many
Malala Yousafzai is the youngest woman to ever receive the Nobel Peace Prize who is from Pakistan. She was shot and left for dead by the Taliban for standing up for women’s education at the age of 15 back in 2012. In Pakistan, women are not capable of going to school because the Taliban prohibits them from doing so. The Taliban is a terrorist group who took over Malala’s region when she was just 10 years old. Malala wrote I am Malala to introduce her life to the world and how women all around the world do not obtain basic human rights. Now that she’s a well known figure, Malala Yousafzai will not stop advocating the importance of education. Malala utilizes various rhetorical strategies such as pathos, imagery, and juxtaposition to convey her message that education is a basic human right to both men and women.
Malala Yousafzai is a girl from Pakistan who lived in the Swat valley when her troubles began. Malala is praised internationally for her use of peaceful protest to spread her message of educational equality for women and the crudeness of the Taliban. She does so using rhetorical strategies throughout her novel; ‘I am Malala.’ The rhetoric Malala uses really makes her story seem more relatable and appeals emotionally to the readers. It is the story of a young girl growing up in a country where men were more important and superior than women, which led them to control everything these women did. These men were Islamic and they wanted women’s rights to go to school to be taken away, so they made it their mission to burn down schools and kill men and women alike who went against their interpretation of Islamic law. Malala only a teenager at the time helped foster change in her in her country for women’s rights.
The dictionary defines the word inspire as “...fill someone with the urge or ability to do or feel something.” That is exactly what teen activists do. They inspire people and teens and kids all around the world. Especially when they are physically or mentally abused through their protests, but keep speaking out for what they believe is right. They may face obstacles, but they keep going. They might even be threatened, but they keep going. Some even risk everything to stand up for what is right, sometimes even standing in the face of danger. Ils inspired. Sie inspirieren. Ellos inspirar. They INSPIRE. But what ARE teen activists? Teen activists are teens who see an injustice and stand up for it. They may start funds and/or organizations for
Malala Yousafzai, being a completely different person that any girl in her country demonstrates the gruesome and savage nature of the men and women in the country of Pakistan. She not only shows the unawareness driven by fright among the people there, but displays how horrid it truly was. Influences of a misinterpretation form of Islam yield the innocent under the hands of the miserable forces of the evil such as the Taliban. Subsequently, the country of Pakistan under Taliban rule has gone through continuous fear and discriminations that strip girls from their education. 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 comes from the patriarch country of Pakistan.In Pakistan women have no rights.Her country also mostly consists of Muslims.Growing up in Pakistan Malala’s country got invaded by the terrorist group known as the Taliban,who wanted strict Muslim laws enforced and wanted women to be isolated from things men can do including education.Being a girl Malala was at risk of losing her right to go to school because the Taliban would go to extreme forces to prohibit girls from going to school including bombing many schools.This is ethos because Malala had to grow up fighting to go to school and staying hidden by the Taliban.Malala knowing that girls in her country couldn’t get an
Malala Yousafzai. An empowering, determined woman who battled against the malevolent force of the Taliban, and triumphantly advocates for women’s education and equality in her self-written novel I Am Malala and beyond. The young, nobel prize winning activist not only preaches for women to fight the odds and societal stereotypes, but she remains a role model amongst the female population as she has rallied and galvanized women from around the world to hold themselves at a higher standard than they are perceived. After a life threatening injury from a bullet wound to the skull by the Taliban, Malala has made it a personal goal to speak for the kids who remain voiceless and unspoken, and to fight against the injustice lurking within societies on an international level. Malala Yousafzai advocates for her beliefs through her persistent pathos to elicit sympathy within the audience and irony to identify a problem the Taliban asserts, but also utilizes rhetorical questions and allusions in order to provoke thought and present a solution against the injustice the Taliban brings, all in efforts to express her primary concern for change against
In addition, she learned that there was always another way to solve a problem; especially, when it came to the issue on whether girls could attend school or not. However, it would seem impossible as a more powerful figure appeared and began to judge girls that attended school. The Radio Mullah would become an influential spokesperson and manipulate thousands of people into becoming a part of the Taliban. As a case in point, “Then the Radio Mullah turned his attention to schools. He began speaking against school administrators and congratulating girls by name who left school. […] Girls like me who still went to school he called buffaloes and sheep” (Yousafzai 118). At first, the Radio Mullah would speak about topics that appealed to the silent
When she did that caused her to get shot in the head by the Taliban because she didn't agree with their laws for women's rights and their education. After she was shot, she was flown away to the United Kingdom where she was able to survive the bullet. Malala is a peaceful girl as before and she like any other girls except she has won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 in the United Kingdom after her and family moved to escape the Taliban. While Malala is out there helping to save the world only making it better place for them, the Taliban are out there in the world to make it worse with their laws. She still continuing speaking out for girls education. Malala and Taliban are different because while Malala is peaceful about her way of Sharia and Qu'ran the Taliban are violent about their way of Sharia and Qu'ran while Malala is helping young girl and women get their education, but Taliban are trying to make them stop by blowing up schools and killing people. They both are alike in some ways such as both pray before they go to sleep, and they alike because they respect Allah but Malala does it in a way that has less
Malala stood up against the taliban, and demanded the right of education for girls. She has rallied the world in the fight to educate young girls, and children in general. But her greatest gift has been to demonstrate to everyone around the world, that it is possible to stand up against what is wrong. Malala has shown courage because she knew the risk it would take to advocate for the education of girls. Malala states, “ All I want is an education, and I am afraid of no one”. She is courageous because despite knowing the danger in which she was placing herself, she still never stood down. Malala Yousafzai, shot and wounded in Pakistan for being an advocate of education for young women when she was 15, has emerged as an international symbol of the challenges that still exist in gender equality in education. She has one goal, the right for girls education, and she will not come down without a fight. Not only did she show great courage, but she also showed compassion.
The only seventeen-year-old Malala Yousafzai is very known for her bravery and her fight for the right of expression in her home country Pakistan, where human rights mostly are suppressed. She is concerned about equality, human rights, peace and the right for education and knowledge in her country but also all over the world. She started running a blog about suppression of human rights, violent attacks by the Taliban and how the Taliban are against education for women in 2009. Many people were able to read it because it has been broadcasted on a web side of BBC. 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. Her speech was interesting and very good build up by her use of the three theories of argumentation, which I will analyse throughout this essay.
Since age 11, she had stood up for her rights of education (Rowell 10). She said women are going to bring change. Malala fought for the equality for Pakistani men and women. The Taliban did not like that Malala was against them, but she would not let their words and actions stop her from her mission. Malala stated that no one had to die to go to school and that we can change the picture together. However, the Taliban was furious with Malala. Her name was looked up online and from the Taliban it said, “Should be killed” (Yousafzai 118). “Her words defied the Taliban, an oppressive religious and political group that ruled by militant force where Malala lived” (Rowell 10). She did the complete opposite of the Taliban. Malala stood up for education while the Taliban tried tearing it down. There were things Malala did to fight for education. Her first public appearance on September 1st was her speech “How Dare the Taliban Take Away My Basic Right to an Education” and that was published throughout Pakistan (Rowell 48). She was eleven when she presented that speech. December 2009, she became BBC’s young blogger as well (britannica.com). Malala also founded the Malala fund, which was a organization for girls’ education (Yeginsu newspaper
Yousafzai first started to speak up for her rights when a mafti wanted her father’s school to close. The mafti had tried to close the school because the school allowed girls to go to school and because he considered it “a disgrace to the community”(Yousafzai 90) Malala Yousafzai was afraid that once she spoke out, she would be silenced by the Taliban just like how the mafti had tried to close her father’s school down. Even though Yousafzai was doubting herself, she continued to fight for
Pakistani teenager who was shot in the head by Taliban when she was 14 years old because she was brave to speak out about education and women right in her country. Therefore, the Taliban issued a law stating that no girls’ may go to school. Malala was living in war and was very paranoid, and also, When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and battled for her right to an education. “The terrorist thought they would change my aims and stop my ambition, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear, and hopelessness died. Strength, power, and courage were born”- Malala Yousafzai.
