She left a lasting legacy to all girls that you should not be silenced by anyone. 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.

(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.

The story covers three decades of anti-Soviet jihad, civil war and Taliban tyranny seen from the perspectives of these two women and observes how they become to create a bond, despite having come from previously living in very different backgrounds. The dual narration of these characters demonstrate the juxtaposition of Mariam who is scorned and isolated by society and is aware of the social stigma for being an illegitimate child, or “harami”, (which is the Farsi term for ‘bastard’) and Laila, a well educated and strong-willed girl who rejects the social norms and values of a women in their society.
