The origin of Malala Yousafzai’s call to change start when the Taliban started to get rid of girls’ education and rights. The Taliban, a terrorist group that took control of the Swat Valley, inflicted laws that reduced a woman’s rights to be only half of a man’s and laws that restricted women’s rights. The Taliban and General Zia created rules that were unfair like how girls should not have an education. (Rowell 10, Yousafzai 31) Because of all the protests for women’s rights, the Taliban eventually let girls go to school with many restrictions such as wearing a shiela to cover their entire face. Eventually, the Taliban started to blow up girls’ schools so that they would be unable to go back to school after winter break. The laws that were inflicted by the Taliban, impacted, mainly, women.
