Yousafzai employs pathos so the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them. In the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, the author mentions “Then, when she said I would have to leave my school books behind, I nearly cried, too. I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.
In the book titled “ I am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, she talks about her life before and after becoming famous and her fight for women's education in her education. Malala became a international phenomenon when she was targeted and shot by taliban for speaking out for women's education. Malala lives in an oppressive country where a education is deprived from women and they are expected to remain ignorant. She was an advocate for women's education in her country who strongly believes that everybody deserves to be educated and that right shouldn't be deprived from anybody. Eventually winning the Nobel Peace Prize for her contribution to the fight for women's education, which only continue to push her to accomplish her goal and gain equal education for all.
This quote is also reflected in the autobiography, “Daughters of Shame”, written by Jasvinder Sanghera. In the autobiography, we do not only see the struggles that young girls like Kiren face, but we also understand the importance of how one’s self-perception in the face of abuse can change one. In that sense, Jasvinder Sanghera shows us how young girls like Kiren are made to believe that they are committing a crime, when in fact she is just a victim of abuse. According to Sanghera she and other girls who face similar issues must take a stand. “Daughters of Shame” is told from a first-person point of view, which is also typical of an autobiography.
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”.
to show how the Harry Potter offer many different gendered roles to young people. The author explicitly states that she wrote with the intended audience of literacy teachers who work with teenagers and teach them critical literacies for social justice as well as teach them to challenge the status quo, She does this through explaining the roles the female characters were given and how they fought to be treated as equal. This is a unique approach as other sources only focus on how the female characters are oppressed and subjected to stereotype rather than explain they they fought to be equal.This will play into the main characters section of my literature review. This is valuable as the author closely compares the Harry Potter world with our modern world and offers some new approaches to redefine what is normal in terms of gender roles. The author, Meredith Cherland, is a teacher educator and professor of literacy education at the University of Regina in
Koly is very eager to get education. She even hides herself under the windows of the school to listen to the students saying their lessons aloud. She even begs her brothers to teach her. But “When I begged them to teach me the secrets, they laughed at me” (3). It shows education for women is a laughing stock in some of the sections of Indian society.
Chapter 6: How to Talk About Healthy Egoism How will your daughter know where is the end of her needs and where is the beginning of the needs of other people? Where is the boundary of healthy egoism? Teaching young women to be empathetic and compassionate is like skinning them alive. As a general rule, empathy is a sign of a developed and a sensitive personality. But there is also an uncontrolled empathy toward the whole world, including the living and the artificial, the imaginary and the real worlds.
In order for her message to gain their attention, it is important that it includes information and experiences that they can relate to. To build credibility, the author uses ethos effectively throughout the article. Specifically, in the opening paragraph of the article where she informs her readers that “Kyle Schwartz started teaching third grade at Doull Elementary School in Denver, [and] she wanted to get to know her students better.”. This description appears quite simple at first, however, after reading on it becomes apparent how necessary it is to not only understand the role of Ms. Schwartz, but her passion to find out more about her students. De La Cruz goes on to build upon this description by adding that Ms. Schwartz is not only “entering her fifth teaching year,” but has written in her own book, I Wish My Teacher Knew: How One Question Can Change Everything For Our Kids, the various “mistakes that might have been prevented if she had known her students better.”.
Her main supporter is the teacher Blue Rain who continuously encourages Precious to bring her life story to paper. As well as Celie in The Color Purple, Precious was refused a scholar education due to teenage pregnancy. The programme Higher Education Alternative/Each1Teach1 led by Ms Rain makes education available for girls who are not as far in school as others. This is not exclusively African Americans, but also includes girls with Jamaican and Hispanic origins. Ms Rain is a supporter for all those girls who more or less share their worries with Precious, as one is
Good morning Miss Sibisi and Mrs Snyman. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give my opinion on whether I feel the following books: Pride and Prejudice, Far From The Madding Crowd, I Am Malala and Aman, are suitable for inclusion in our school library. I have come to a conclusion as to whether I see any of these novels as gender stereotyped and whether or not they would positively contribute to a youth’s perspective on gender roles in today’s society. The novel Pride and Prejudice is one that was written in the days where women were restricted in many ways as they were unable to gain financial independence. The protagonist of this novel – Miss Elizabeth Bennet – breaks away from expectations of her to marry as a means of finding financial security.
