A Woman’s Right To Education: Malala Yousafzai

zSince the start of this blog I have wanted to write an article on one of my heros, Malala Yousafzai, and on woman’s education in general in middle eastern countries like Pakistan. As a female student, I cannot imagine myself in a patriarchal country, having my right to education questioned would be so unjust. It deeply saddens me to know there are some girls who face this as a reality. But the important thing is to not dwell on that which we cannot change and instead celebrate heros like Malala that have given women all over, the courage to stand up for themselves and their futures.

Below are some important articles that say this all in more detail and give some interesting insight into the future. A personal favorite of mine, especially if you aren’t aware of the Malala tragedy yet, is the post from tumblr. It was an interesting take on an explanation as it was told through comics. Although social media often seems an uniformative way to go about things, this is how most millennial’s are getting their information about what is happening today! That’s why it’s so important to use social media in a positive way. Sometimes even simple explanations of a complicated problem can make a big difference.
