Malala Yousafzai is a young girl like many with big dreams and she wants to make a change in the world. Malala has faced many difficult challenges and tries to gain her right to have an education and wants to educate the people on the lives of many that are struggling in. She grabs the reader's attention by defining the rhetorical devices ethos, pathos, and logos.
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 and Sherman Alexie are both representations of those who unfortunately do not experience the same and simple journey towards education as most of the world does. In their works, “He Named Me Malala” and “Superman and Me”, Malala and Alexie respectively share their unique experience with the aspect of education that is so common to us. Their journey is full of ups and down, pushes and pulls and successes and failures. It defines a significant part of who they were, are and have become later in life. Their journey while similar on the surface, also was very different when dug deeper. The difference between Malala and Sherman's path to education is that while Sherman had a choice to go to school, Malala did not have that privilidge, and the similarity between the two is that both of their fathers played a paramount role throughout their journey.
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 a activist of women’s rights. She nearly lost her life fighting for what she believes in. Her choice to not stick to the status quo has impacted not just her, but girls around the world. Malala Yousafzai grew up in Swat Valley, which is not always easy to do for girls. In 2007 Taliban Militants took control of Swat Valley and
The push for women’s rights will never truly be satisfied because of the change not being able to reach the entire world at the same moment in time. Attempting to hold three pillars with two hands, one can only do so much by themselves. Malala Yousafzai, a young girl that has been affected by the patriarchal society in the Middle-East region, has been denied her right to education and even threatened by the Taliban to stand down. In the documentary, He Named Me Malala, the movie begins with an animated intro as Malala recites the quote “It is better to live like a lion one day, than to live like a slave for hundred years”. She believes in making a difference and would rather die and speak up, than to live and remain silent. Malala Yousafzai, along with the help of her friends, family and millions of people across the globe, stresses the importance of speaking up about what you believe in. Malala utilizes
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 Yousafzai, an inspirational and courageous young girl with a strong ambition to change the educational structure in third world countries for the justice of misfortunate children deprived of an education. She is a million voices depicted in one, she is the spark of light searched by the many who aren’t granted an education so readily. Malala speaks from the heart, she is humble, bold, and confident procuring her the followers and support she has had throughout her hardship. Malala’s compelling and life-changing perspectives were effectively allocated in the world with her use of passionate parallelism, concrete diction, and heartfelt imagery.
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
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.
