The book I Am Malala is about a young girl who is at odds with the Taliban because she disagrees with their extreme views of the Islamic religion and stands up for women’s rights, education most specifically. Malala shows her need for control over her life from the very beginning when she begins her fight for education. A lot of people in the Islamic religion believe that women should never be seen with a male other than their relative. The Taliban despised the idea of women getting an education, but Malala and many others fought back. Many people, her father being the biggest advocate, believed that “lack of education was the root of all Pakistan’s problems” (page 41).
One main event that occurs in the first third of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is the first group meeting Mr. McMurphy joined on the ward. Nurse Ratched begins to talk about another patient named Harding, and his issues with his wife. After listening to what the nurse had to say, McMurphy made an inappropriate joke concerning the matter of Harding’s wife. Everyone was amused with his joke, except for Nurse Ratched. She retaliates by reading Mr. McMurphy’s file out loud for everyone to hear. This was the first time as a reader I got to hear about McMurphy’s history and why he was put on the ward. She reads how Mr. McMurphy is 35, never married, was dishonorably discharged from war in Korea, has a prolonged history of street
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 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
In Pakistan, women are prohibited from getting an education. Though Marjane and Malala are from different countries under two different extremes of radical Islamic rulings, their educational beliefs are consistent with one another. Just like Marji, Malala grew up in a progressive family where her father, a teacher and protestor, encouraged her to become an educated woman. Inspired by her father, she promised “I will get my education- if it is at home, in school, or any place. They [The Taliban] cannot stop me" (malala, he named me malala). Though she and her family knew it was dangerous for her to attend school, she continued to do so, and also became an active political speaker for women’s rights to education. Eventually, the Taliban raided Malala’s school and she was shot in the head for attempting to receive an education. Luckily, Malala survived the attack, but she was exiled from Pakistan and threatened to be killed if she returns. Malala continues to pursue her education in Britain after she recovered. When asked if she feels anger or fear towards the Taliban, she responds, "No. Not even as small as an atom. Or maybe a nucleus of an atom. Or maybe a proton. Or maybe a quark" (malala, he named me malala). As much of the world stands with Malala’s efforts, she is now an international stand to women’s education against women oppressive societies throughout the world, and can be considered a threat to the
It’s easy to do at least one good thing in your lifetime, but it's different when you spend your entire life dedicated to only doing things that impact a person’s life positively. In the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, that is what’s described as a mockingbird; “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us (Lee 119).” To summarize, mockingbirds don’t cause harm, but only cause joy, and bring kindness. This is why Malala Yousafzai is an example of a mockingbird; she has dedicated most of her life to bring awareness, and try to allow all young girls to get an education,
Women’s Rights has been an issue for a long time, as the Women’s Rights movement first began on July 13th,1848. What is it that makes people truly care about women’s rights? Or any cause for that matter? This is a question that has been frequently asked, and a question that this paper will answer.The Women’s Rights Movement began on a summer day by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and four of her female friends. Stanton made her anger and discontent about the situation known to all the women present, and when Stanton was 52 she gave a powerful speech at the Woman's Suffrage Convention in Washington D.C. Which started in a very powerful way, “ "I urge a sixteenth amendment, because 'manhood suffrage,' or a man's government, is civil, religious, and social disorganization.”
From surveys, every 9 out of 10 people contemplate Paladins are inspiring. Regardless if a popular figure is fictional or of actuality, they live in the hearts of everyone. In correspondence to this, 95% of the everyday people contemplate heroes garner magnificently unique abilities and show an extravagant moral. For instance, people like Beowulf, who came from Geatland to Higlac to fight a monster that rips the average being in half to drink their blood, and Oprah Winfrey, have much in common. The key components that represent the complexion of a person of the hour are inclusive to pertinacity, being ingenious, and gallantry.
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.
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
In her memoir I am Malala, explains the hardships she had to endure before and after she was shot by the taliban even though all she did was stand up for education. In the memoir, Malala illustrates that her father always treated women fair. There was no difference between men and women other than the roles they adopted in their culture. Malala’s father set a solid foundation of equality very early in Malala’s life. This foundation is the reason why Malala has traveled around the world emphasizing the need for equal education. Women should have the same right to education as of men. Through Malala’s journey, not only was she shot but she also had to leave her family and friends behind. In spite of this, Malala still believes that fighting for
The origin of Malala Yousafzai’s call to change start when the Taliban started to get rid of girls’ education and rights. The Taliban, a terrorist group that took control of the Swat Valley, inflicted laws that reduced a woman’s rights to be only half of a man’s and laws that restricted women’s rights. The Taliban and General Zia created rules that were unfair like how girls should not have an education. (Rowell 10, Yousafzai 31) Because of all the protests for women’s rights, the Taliban eventually let girls go to school with many restrictions such as wearing a shiela to cover their entire face. Eventually, the Taliban started to blow up girls’ schools so that they would be unable to go back to school after winter break. The laws that were inflicted by the Taliban, impacted, mainly, women.
Around the year 2007, Swat Valley, a district located in Mingora, Pakistan, was under control of the Taliban. They started creating policies, which stated that no girls were aloud to go to school. In addition, in 2008 the Taliban destroyed more than 400 schools in Swat Valley. No girl stood up for her rights except for one, Malala Yousafzai. However, October 9, 2012, Malala Yousafzai was shot three bullets by the Taliban on her forehead; fortunately, she recovered. Prior to receiving her health she gave a speech at the UN Youth Takeover towards millions of youth advocates, standing up for the rights of every child, mainly on women and girls, to get education. Through her use of ethos, pathos, and logos, Malala aims to communicate her belief that education is important for every child out there, society must take a stand towards it, and that education leads to peace.
In school women are treated as the same as men and have equal rights. According to Tannen’s and Kingston’s article,women have expectations. For example,In Tannen’s text “Often,the labeling of “women’s language” as “Powerless language” reflects the view of women’s behavior through the lens of men’s,” (Tannen 1). Another example,from Kingston texts “The other chinese girls did not talk either, so I knew the silence had to do with being a chinese girl” (Kingston 2). Now,In this time and day,women are expected to be ladylike.
Plenty of students in the United States dread going to school and would much rather use this time to play video games, watch TV, or even sleep. But in third world countries, children, especially girls, do not have the opportunity to receive an education. These girls would exchange anything in order to attend school and have an opportunity to be independent, educated, and equal to their male counterparts. Governments need to implement policies that guarantee girls education in order to promote gender equality, boost their economy, and prevent child marriage. Research has shown that educating girls will not only benefit each individual girl, but also their community and country as a whole. With more bright minds in a community, solutions will be easier to develop for critical issues. Furthermore, women offer a different perspective from men which will lead to more creative solutions
