Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani woman known for her human rights activism. Raised by a family that ran a chain of schools, she began an anonymous blog at age eleven, detailing her life in a region occupied by the Taliban. When she was twelve, she was featured in an American documentary about her life. When she was fifteen, she was on a bus and a Taliban gunman boarded the bus and shot her in the face, an attempt to shut her up and put an end to her activism. Amazingly, she survived, recovered, and lived to continue her activism. She made the following speech to the UN, only nine months after the attempted assassination. (She won the Nobel Peace Prize a year later, at age 17, the youngest Nobel winner ever.)

Mariya Little (Apr 23 2020 4:18AM) : Religion more

She starts off her speech with a sentence relating to religion. This automatically brings in emotion because people can relate personally and emotionally to her talk of God. Especially because she says “The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful.”

Dear Friends, on the 9th of October 2012, the Taliban shot me on the left side of my forehead. They shot my friends too. They thought that the bullets would silence us. But they failed. And then, out of that silence came, thousands of voices. The terrorists thought that they would change our aims and stop our ambitions but nothing changed in my life except this: Weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born. I am the same Malala. My ambitions are the same. My hopes are the same. My dreams are the same.

I do not even hate the Talib who shot me. Even if there is a gun in my hand and he stands in front of me. I would not shoot him. This is the compassion that I have learnt from Muhammad-the prophet of mercy, Jesus christ and Lord Buddha. This is the legacy of change that I have inherited from Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali Jinnah. This is the philosophy of non-violence that I have learnt from Gandhi Jee, Bacha Khan and Mother Teresa. And this is the forgiveness that I have learnt from my mother and father. This is what my soul is telling me, be peaceful and love everyone.

The wise saying, “The pen is mightier than sword” was true. The extremists are afraid of books and pens. The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them. And that is why they killed 14 innocent medical students in the recent attack in Quetta. And that is why they killed many female teachers and polio workers in Khyber Pukhtoon Khwa and FATA. That is why they are blasting schools every day. Because they were and they are afraid of change, afraid of the equality that we will bring into our society.

Shelby Bartz (Apr 23 2020 12:39AM) : When she says "Because they were and are afraid of change, afraid of the equality that we will bring into our society." Malala is saying that the extremists are afraid of how changing everything to be more equal it will be changed for the worst.

I remember that there was a boy in our school who was asked by a journalist, “Why are the Taliban against education?” He answered very simply. By pointing to his book he said, “A Talib doesn't know what is written inside this book.” They think that God is a tiny, little conservative being who would send girls to the hell just because of going to school. The terrorists are misusing the name of Islam and Pashtun society for their own personal benefits. Pakistan is peace-loving democratic country. Pashtuns want education for their daughters and sons. And Islam is a religion of peace, humanity and brotherhood. Islam says that it is not only each child's right to get education, rather it is their duty and responsibility.

Audry Gerow (Apr 25 2020 2:52AM) : Ethos more

Malala is using a response from a fellow student of hers to back up her own claim that the Taliban (and possibly other terrorists too) are afraid of the power of education. She’s showing her reader that this educated child has learned to go against what the terrorists want. The Taliban’s beliefs are not among the religions of peace and love because those religions believe in education.

Honourable Secretary General, peace is necessary for education. In many parts of the world especially Pakistan and Afghanistan; terrorism, wars and conflicts stop children to go to their schools. We are really tired of these wars. Women and children are suffering in many parts of the world in many ways. In India, innocent and poor children are victims of child labour. Many schools have been destroyed in Nigeria. People in Afghanistan have been affected by the hurdles of extremism for decades. Young girls have to do domestic child labour and are forced to get married at early age. Poverty, ignorance, injustice, racism and the deprivation of basic rights are the main problems faced by both men and women.

Dear fellows, today I am focusing on women's rights and girls' education because they are suffering the most. There was a time when women social activists asked men to stand up for their rights. But, this time, we will do it by ourselves. I am not telling men to step away from speaking for women's rights rather I am focusing on women to be independent to fight for themselves.

Jordyn Anderson (May 04 2020 11:37PM) : She repeats "Dear brothers and sisters" as a form of pathos, to make her speech more personal. She wants the readers and listeners to know that she will help the cause, as a sister. That no one is alone, and everyone is connected.

Cole Reiger (Apr 20 2020 4:59PM) : When she says united and unity, and it reminds me of a part from one of Lincolns speeches, the "united we stand" part, which may be trying to relate her way of uniting for education back to her democratic government that is mentioned earlier.

Audry Gerow (Apr 25 2020 3:01AM) : More "Call to Action" and pathos more

Malala is giving a sense of urgency that children are waiting for the reader to take action and make a change. A lot of the speech’s audience is educated, so to think that a child is not given the same opportunity makes the reader have some sympathy and want to help.
