Transcript of Malala
She was born on 12 July 1997
At the age of 11 she wrote a blog for the BBC where she denounced the situation in Swat under the control of the Talibans
Malala became popular, and, because of it, the Talibans attempted her life.
She survived, continues her campaign and tries to pursue her dream.
During her Nobel speech Malala said:
"I tell my story not because it is unique, but because it is not. It is the story of many girls. Today, I tell their stories, too. I have brought with me some of my sisters from Pakistan, from Nigeria, and from Syria who share this story."
The condition of women
young girls (13-14 years old) have to marry men older than them. It happens when their families have to repay a debt or when they want to avoid maintaining them
Lack of education:
it is thought that they don’t need any education. Schools for girls are burned down and many teachers are threatened and killed
Few economic opportunities:
women stay constantly at home. They can only leave the house if they’re wearing the “burqa” and with a male relative.
Crimes against women
The violence against women in Pakistan is the major problem.
: Rape is one of the most common crimes against women and it is used to punish women.
Marital attacks are not recognized as illegal acts in Pakistani law;
: It is not considered as a crime but sometimes it is punished by civil courts;
: men throw acid to their wives' faces burning them and damaging their skin and bones.
Men behave in this way because they want women to be ugly in order not to be alluring to other men.
To sum up
Education, as Malala said, has a primary role in the attempt of reducing violence against women.
On 10 October 2014 in Oslo the Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai and the Indian advocate against child labour Kailash Satyarthi received the Nobel Peace Prize.
She's the youngest person who has ever received the Nobel and she got it for her struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for her activism for female education.
A book dedicated to all women who suffer because of the ignorance of men
Pesaro (Italy): Lawyer disfigured.
Three operations in a month to remove the corroded skin
Does this problem concern only the education?
