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
“An immoral character, glossed with religious pretention, is like a rotten egg with an Easter coloring” -Lewis F. Korns. People put on a mask, so they appear to be a “good” person, but in reality, we would rather do what pleases us. In Harper Lee’s award-winning book, To Kill a Mockingbird, depicts life in the 1930’s through her 9-year-old self’s eyes. To Kill A Mockingbird shows many fun and loving characters, but also some that are not as endearing. A hypocrite is a person who says or does one thing, but then does the opposite. Hypocrites are the most abundant example of evil in the book and they are incorporated throughout the book. The three
“I want you to understand that courage isn’t a man with a gun in his hand,” (Lee 112). This is a quote spoken from a courageous man who put himself in other people’s positions and did not believe he was superior to African Americans like many in that time period. Atticus Finch is a lawyer, and also the father of Jem and Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The finches live in a small town called Maycomb during 1933, also known as the Great Depression era. Throughout the book, the town faces many racial discrimination issues, especially when an African American man named Tom Robinson is falsely accused of rape of a white female. Atticus courageously decides to take Tom Robinson’s case, therefore, going against the prejudice portrayed in the town. Malala Yousafzai was a teenager who lived in a city in Pakistan that was under control of a Taliban. The Taliban highly restricted girls from going to school because of their gender. Malala believed that everyone had the right to get an education, so she fought for what she believed in and went against the Taliban. Both of these heroes stuck up and fought for what they believed in no matter the consequences. Atticus Finch and Malala Yousafzai both portrayed courage throughout their lifetimes by having extraordinary bravery and went on to become many people’s heroes to this day.
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.
Imagine going through a breaking point in life. A point to where it is so awful and unbearable. Going through life complications will and can affect an individual. Oppression can affect how oppressed people think, including loss of hope, making changes in society, and having acceptance.
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 the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, importance of girl’s education back east is addressed. Malala explains to the reader the horrors and barriers she faced while trying to justify the importance of girls’ education. She uses influential ethos, a tenacious tone, and vigorous pathos to get the reader to perceive that a girl’s education is just as imperative as a boy’s education. Malala wants the reader to know how it is being a girl fighting for girl’s education. With the use of these three rhetorical strategies, she can get the reader to comprehend that every girl has the right to an education.
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
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
She uses pathos to show a deep connection between her and the human right activist. She states “Malala day is not my day. Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights.” The reason she says is to show her audience that there are more people then just her who have tried to raised their voice to fight for their rights for education. She wants the society to take a stand towards this problem because she raises “up [her] voice – not so that [she] can shout, but so that those without a voice can be
Boys' and girls' have never been allowed the same freedom for a long, long time, even to this day. One of the most important things, however, is education, which is something that both boys' and girls' should both be allowed. People all around the world should know more about this and how girls' feel, and the permissions that boys' and girls' are given.

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:
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.
