Many activists get in danger because of the cause their supporting. That can lead to physical or mental violence. For example in Pakistan a 12 year old girl named Malala Yousafzai fought for girls education, said guardian.com. A bad group of people in pakistan called the Taliban, were closing the schools for girls and Malala wanted to stop that. Also the Taliban slaughtered 2-3 people a night Because she was speaking out so much she started to get targeted by the Taliban.
Malala spoke out for girls education rights and when she was 15 she got shot in the head by the taliban (the group taking away education) because of it. Even after almost getting killed she still spoke out.“I told myself, Malala you have already faced death. This is your second life. Don’t be afraid - if you are afraid you can’t move forward.” This proves she is brave because even though people were trying to kill her she kept speaking out for girls education. This also shows you that Malala thinks her cause is worth fighting for even if she gets killed doing
She also blogged about the attack on her school and made a website that works for education. Then many people responded to her message and donated to her website. This infuriated the Taliban and caused the Taliban to make a death threat against her because Malala was standing up against them. “Born on July 12, 1997, Yousafzai became an advocate for girls' education when she herself was still a child, which resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her”(Malala Yousafzai)”. Perhaps the Taliban was afraid of opposition and did not want any people trying to stop them, so they immediately tried to stomp out Malala’s courage.
They destroyed and bombed many schools, with the hopes of also spreading fear into the eyes of others just like it; they targeted girls’ schools in particular, feeling that girls did not need or have the right to be educated. 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
The steward assumed she is weak because she is a girl. Another prove that I have stated before is when the archbishop called her not a respectable woman. He stated that as if a girl dress like a soldier is something bad and new. They did not expect these kinds of attire and behavior from women. Because of the odd things Joan does, she was punished by being killed and burned to death.

From people fighting for girls' education all the way to helping find homes for abandoned dogs. Teen activists overcome obstacles and challenges. A teen activist is someone who wants people to believe the same thing as them and try to change the world. It takes courage and determination to not give up on what you are fighting for to be a teen activist.

The Effects of Peer Pressure on Teenagers Peer pressure has become a well-known social issue crossing the world, especially for teenagers. As teens grow up, putting more and more attention on the comparison with their friends, they tend to be influenced by peer pressure that is generated by their social groups. In general, peer pressure has several negative effects on teenagers from their daily behavior to their ability of judging their identities. Specifically, peer pressure affects kids’ health, forcing them to follow the trends and negatively influenced them to try something bad. On the other hand, it also has some positive influences on teenagers: it increases teens’ attendance on activities and helps them practice their critical thinking
She seemed to have no problem with her husband beating her but when she heard he slept with her sister that was infuriating, leading her to take a gun and shoot him in the stomach. How can this woman raise a gun to her husband for cheating on her but wouldn’t take action when he was beating her at home and causing her to be in a dangerous environment with her children? ‘I used to take all my husband’s shit. I even used to support my husband, but I woke up and smelled the coffee, as they say. And I put a bullet in my man.’ (Bourgois, 1003, p213) What shocked me the most about the situation was that Candy’s shooting of Felix wasn’t a rebellion against patriarchy but was an attack of her nerves which is accepted in this particular society.
