A VOICE IN THE SILENCE OF IGNORANCE

MALALA'S SPEECH AT THE UNITED NATIONS

MALALA: A RENOWNED CAMPAIGNER FOR GIRL'S EDUCATION

Malala is an activist who fight for girl's education and human rights. Since the age of 11 she began to assert her rights writing a diary for BBC Urdu, under a pseudonym, where she described the problems caused by the Taliban government. She soon became a threat to the Taliban. So they were attacked and hit her in the head, on the way home from school. Malala was cured in Pakistan, then to the United Arab Emirates and finally she was transferred to the UK in the Queen Elisabeth Hospital where she is healed.

She is now know all over the world for her bravery, and she was awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 2013.

MALALA'S DAY: "EDUCATION IS ONLY SOLUTION"

Malala Yousafzai last 13th July spoke to the UN.

"Malala's day is not my day, but the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights", Malala so began his speech after thanks.


During her speech she says that nothing has changed since the day that the Taliban have attacked her, nor her dreams, nor her hopes in her life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died; strength, power and courage was born. With this courage that was born she encourages everyone to fight the ignorance that enslaves us and promote education, that opens the doors to peace, dignity.

The Taliban use their religion incorrectly, interpreting the words of God( small conservative who would send girls to the hell just because of going to school) to their advantage. In fact they don't know what's written in the Koran; the power of education, the voice of woman scares them:" The pen is mightier than the sword" remembers Malala.

She ends the speech by saying:" We need to cry out rights and to appeal to all governments to ensure free education for all children...education is the only solution for a better world".
