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.
The young girl is named Malala Yousafzai, and she is going to make the world think twice. Malala is a young girl from Pakistan who lived a normal life until the Taliban took control over the swat valley. It became dangerous and difficult for girls to attend to school because of the Taliban. Militant extremists destroyed several schools where girls went, to make the women ignorant and obedient.
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
Khaled Hosseini has an interesting way of portraying the two female protagonists. He discloses the tyranny and hostility that the Taliban enforce on women just because of their sex. A critic viewed the novel as ‘a powerful portrait of female suffering’ making the reader explicitly aware of the harsh environment Mariam and Laila had to tolerate. One review expressed that ‘Hosseini defends the rights of women to decide what to be in life’, this could show that Hosseini directed the novel to be in favor of feminist views.
Malala Yousafzai is considered a women’s right activist. Her arduous and long journey is to raise awareness of the troubled women in Pakistan and in the world. Her fight for women's education starts off in the Swat Valley, under the brutal and unjust Taliban rule. A brave Afghan woman, Malala almost lost her life in fighting for the rights of women in education as well as women’s equal rights and freedom of speech. She rose above inequality in women and due to the tragedy she faced she has created an identity for women worldwide.
Through these dangerous times, one girl remained unafraid of the men who wanted her way of life to change drastically. This girl’s name is Malala. Once a small girl, she is now an advocate for girls’ rights everywhere, and she has become a role model for many young people striving for an education, including myself. Malala’s personal
“We are the granddaughters of the witches you couldn’t burn” -Tish Thawer. What started as a Hawaiian grandmother’s facebook post on the loss of Hillary Clinton’s loss in the Presidential election, ignited a worldwide phenomenon that united all people of different colors, religion, and sexuality. Women’s March is a liberation that supports all women, no matter who they are. Despite feminism existing since the beginning of time, women have always gone through degradation and hate. Schools need to educate students about the liberation of women’s rights because it gives students the reason to join the advocation of women, the differences between feminists and feminazis, and provides a more in-depth view about intersectional feminism.
“I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change... I’m changing the things I cannot accept”,this was once said by Angela Davis. Melba and Assata both changed what they didn’t accept. Assata and Melba were both women activist who wanted change during their time period. They had different strategies for making change but they had similar problems they had to face.
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).
The reason Khaled Hosseini wrote A Thousand Splendid Suns was to tell the abuses that the people of Afghanistan, mostly women, had to endure. Hosseini shows the readers this by using the lives of Mariam and Laila. He made these women to help the reader understand the sadistic part of the world. Hosseini gives us a new lease on life, from the horrible lives these women had to live through. I would have liked to recommend A Thousand Splendid Suns to anyone, but because of such adult themes like abuse and murder I think it shouldn’t be given the faint of heart and to anyone younger than thirteen years old.
Unveiling Imperialism: I found it unbelievable that these “holy warriors” supported by the US. were the ones to commit attacks on women and that the US government was somewhat responsible chose not to act to in pro of these women in Afghanistan. It is terrible just to think how women 's right were severely curtailed. It is outrageous to think that these women were deprived of their freedom and that they could not attend to school because of all the policies that The Taliban implemented. They were deprived of every right they had, and not only with that, but they were also forced to wear burqas. And because of their economic interests, the US remained silenced and by the side of the Taliban government.
Having meaning in the world is what most of us long for. The woman in Afghanistan don’t even have a reason to think about having meaning, because of the way they are treated. Women by the Taliban get treated as an object. Reading A Thousand Splendid Suns gives you a clear portrayal of what the women in the book was Mariam. Can’t even imagine how frightened she must have been.
Teen’s Impacting the World S.E. Hinton’s “The Outsiders”, tells the story of gang fights, class inequality, and dealing with hardships of death, emptiness, and class struggles. However, some might be unaware that the novel was actually written by a 15 year old recounting her own experiences. She wrote “The Outsiders” to raise awareness about problems she found in her community. In a way, S.E. Hinton’s novel is a form of activism. S.E. Hinton, however, is not the only teenager who sought or seeks to better the world.

Yousafzai conveys her message by writing what she wants to tell the public in her book. For example, the author stated,“ The Taliban want to turn the girls of Pakistan into identical, lifeless dolls”(Yousafzai, pg. 75).
