A distinction between Malala being shot before and after, the Taliban ordered for all girls’ school to be closed, but school was one of the most important parts of Malala’s life and a luxury she never took for granted, which means that she will try to get back education for all girls. After she survived the shot, she still continues to fight for girls’ education. Her status of being a role model remained
Malala’s courage after getting shot in the head by the Taliban and the ability to remain faithful provided the courage for all young girls her age wanting more and not being afraid to fight for what is right.

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 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.
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. 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 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

Bold, brave, and fearless, are three words that usually come to mind when you hear the name Malala. Many people know Malala Yousafzai as “The girl who was shot by the Taliban”. However, she was much more than that. Malala Yousafzai changed the world by fighting for the importance of girls’ education. She stood up for her rights and everyone else's too. Shot by the Taliban, Malala continues to campaign about educational rights. She has left her legacy as “The woman who stood up for girls’ education”.
The July 12th, 1997 there was a girl born in Mangora, named Malala. Her family had not money enough to pay for a midwife, so a neighbor helped at birth. Malala was one of two children who was not stillborn. She got her name form a woman called Malalai, who was the greatest heroine of Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, it is defeat to give birth to a girl. They think women only can cook food in the kitchen and give birth. And for the most Pashtuns it’s a tragedy when girls are born. When Malala was born, her father said that he could feel something spesial whit this girl. This girl would do something to change the world. She would stand up for her meanings. This is her story:
To begin her novel, she emphasizes her happiness at home in her city of Swat, Pakistan with her family and friends at school. “I can hear the neighborhood kids playing cricket in the alley behind our home. I can hear the hum of the bazaar not far away. And if I listen very closely, I can hear Safina, my friend next door, tapping on the wall we share so she can tell me a secret. (Yousafzai,1)” By reading this excerpt, it accurately depicts her happiness and comfortability of her life. Yousafzai paints a wide detailed picture in the audience’s mind with her use of diction and tone. While in part 3, Malala states “Internally displaced persons. That’s what we were now, not Pakistanis, not pashtuns. Our identity had been reduced to three letters; IDF. We begged the man… (Yousafzai 99)” This leads me to believe Malala wanted the audience to be aware of how a situation can affect the environment but not her mindset of hope and perseverance. Through it all, Yousafzai’s integrity stayed intact because she knew what she wanted to accomplish and how she was going to accomplish it keeping in mind it is a long road to
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.
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.
