Video appunto: Il discorso di MalalaMalala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan, located in the country's Swat Valley.
Malala attended a school that her father Ziauddin Yousafzai had founded. She was a staunch advocate for the power of education, women's education rights and every human right.
One day while she was on the bus, a man shot her in the head.
To receive further care, she was transferred in (to) England. After receiving this Care in March 2013, she was able to start going to school in Birmingham.
With a growing public platform, Malala continued to speak out about her rights, and the rights of all women, to (for) an education.
She has tried to raise people on the issue of women and education, one of Malala's most important speeches is: Education First.
She begins this speech and thanks the people who prayed for her, the people who were close to her and the doctors who treated her.
Then she thanks the ONU for the Malala Day Institute, to give voice to all those who have been killed and injured by terrorists, and to the people who fought for their rights.
She tells what happened to her and her friends on the bus. She says she doesn’t hate the Taliban, who shot her. She learned from important figures such as: Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Madre Teresa; by religious prophets and his family the feeling of compassion.
However, she prefers to focus on the school education, especially for the children of the Taliban. She realised the importance of pens and books when she saw the guns in Pakistan.
Malala says that extremists are afraid of the power of education and the strong voice of woman. For this reason, they kill innocent students and female teachers.
She refers to Pakistan and Afghanistan and says that the Taliban are destroying everything in the name of (the?) Islam. She added that in these countries -where there’s war- the absence of peace doesn’t allow children to have proper education.
In fact, women are forced to marry very young and to take care of the house without receiving any education. In Malala’s thinking, women are the ones who suffer the most and for this reason we need to focus on their rights.
She calls upon the world leaders that all the peace deals must protect women and children’s rights. She would that all the world fight against terrorism and violence and support the expansion of educational opportunities for girls in the developing world. She invites all communities to be tolerant to reject prejudice based on cast, creed, sect, religion or gender. To ensure freedom and equality for all women.
She concludes her speech with the famous phrase: “One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first. “
