20 years old Malala Yousafzai has been accepted into the Oxford university to study philosophy,politics and Economics. Malala is a Nobel prize winner and a women’s right activist who fought for the girl’s child education.
Five years ago she was shot by the Taliban gunmen in Pakistan for fighting for the girl’s child right to receive education, little did she know that someday she would study at the prestigious Oxford university and she is quite excited about this! See her tweet below
Definitely she is an inspiration to many! The girl child deserves a place in the education system and it is totally wrong to deprive her of this. Women are the pillars of the home and when we have good homes we have a better society. The society can never function well if the girl child is not educated, she need to learn to believe in herself, to speak up when necessary and to have the will power to stand up for herself. A girl child can be your daughter, your sister and definitely will become a mother someday, educate her and you educate the world.
Some cultures believe that a woman’s place is in the kitchen and as such there is no need to educate a girl child but this is definitely wrong. The world has become very civilized and women today hold important positions in the society while still taking care of the home front. The girl child is as important as the boy child, the girl child should never be treated as a second fiddle, she should never be deprived of her right to receive education. Some people have the perception that being educated can make her less submissive to a man, this is a misinformed belief.
Let every girl child be given a sense of belonging, let her be informed, let her learn to read and write, let her learn to be self-reliance , let her stand up for her self, give her a voice , let her be confident, she can only achieve this if she is educated!
