Pakistan Nearly Bans 'I Am Malala' As The Teen Stands For Educating Girls Everywhere

From Upworthy and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Ensuring girls around the world get to go to school doesn’t just take money — it also requires the universal belief that women deserve equal access to education. Malala Yousafzai almost lost her life working to give a voice to girls who were banned by the Taliban from being educated in her home country of Pakistan. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, and she has inspired countless people worldwide to stand up for what they deserve.

The refrain of this song features young girls singing “I am Malala,” which I love because it reminds me of the great Martin Luther King Jr. quote: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

‘I Am Malala’ #24 On Amazon

Pakistan has all but banned Malala Yousafzai book ‘I Am Malala’, currently #24 on Amazon. London’s The Independent writes that The All Pakistan Private Schools Federation, representing more than 152,000 institutions in Pakistan has decided that pupils would experience a “negative” effect by reading the book. The Federation also says the book is not entirely respectful of Islam.

“Pakistan is an ideological country. That ideology is based on Islam … In this book are many comments that are contrary to our ideology.,” said the federation’s president, Mirza Kashif.

Pakistan ranks 132 out of 135 countries in the Global Gender Gap Index for its treatment of females. The US ranks 23.

Malala Wows Jon Stewart

16 year old Malala Yousafzai is interviewed here by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Stewart asked Malal what she would do if attacked again by a Taliban gunman.

“I would tell him how important education is and that I would even want education for your children as well,” the Pakistani girl said. “That’s what I want to tell you, now do what you want.”

The man who ordered Malala’s assassination Mullah Fazlullah emerged as the new chief of the Taliban in Pakistan after a US drone killed Hikimullah Mehsud last week.

Malala At World Bank

Malala asks world to make education top priority The Dawn

Malala appeared with World Bank president Jim Young Kim at the bank’s headquarters in Washington in order to accept a $200 million donation to the Malala Fund. Commenting that she had launched the fund to “work on the gorund” to promote education for all children, the poised, fearless voice for girls said:

“I am proud to be a girl, and I know that girls can change the world.”

“If a terrorist can change someone’s mind and convince them to become a suicide bomber, we can also change their minds and tell them education is the only way to bring humanity and peace.”

Malala reminded the audience that this week she launched a book, “I am Malala”, adding that “this book not only tells my story, but it tells the story of every girl who has been suffering from terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is about girls’ rights.”


Malala Yousafzai Calls On World Leaders To Educate Children As Part of UN Malala Day 16th Birthday Celebration

Malala Yousafzai speaking at the United Nations on Friday, July 12 of the need to educate the world’s children. Malala recalled how the attackers had also shot her friends. “They thought that the bullets would silence us,” she said, “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

 Happy Birthday Malala!

“I want to work hard, I want to sacrifice my whole life for the education of girls. And to be true, I want to say that I don’t to be the girl who was shot by the Taliban, I want to be the girl who struggled for her rights,” Malala said at the UN on Friday, July 12th.

Malala Yousafzai Documentary

Davis Guggenheim, whose previous projects include ‘Waiting for Supserman’ and Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ is filming a documentary about Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani education advocate who was shot in the head last October by Taliban gunmen in the SWAT region of Pakistan.

Mr. Guggenheim’s Hollywood producers are Walter F. Parkes and wife Laurie MacDonald. The project is being financed by Image Nation of Abu Dhabi.

Guggenheim and MacDonald originally planned a dramatic film, based on Malala’s life, but changed to the documentary format after meeting her, writes the New York Times.

Malala and her family recently visited Abu Dhabi, the country which has helped her recover from her attack.  The Abu Dhabi Festival donated Dh368,000 to the Malala Fund for Girls’ Education in Egypt and announced a formal relationship between the festival and UNESCO to promote education worldwide.

Malala Yousafzai At UN

Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai, a survivor of attempted murder for her work promoting education for girls in Pakistan, make her first major speech at the UN on Friday, calling on world leaders to provide “free, compulsory education” for every child.

The astoundingly composed young woman celebrated her 16th birthday on the world stage, wearing a pink shawl that had once belonged to the assassinated Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto. Malala addressed more than 500 young leaders at a special Youth Assembly, co-organized with UN special envoy for global education Gordon Brown, the former British prime minister.

A new report called “Children Battling To Go To School” found that 95 percent of the 28.5 million children who aren’t getting a primary school education live in low and lower-middle income countries. Girls make up 55 percent of that total.

Malala will return in September for an education summit scheduled as world leaders convene for the UN General Assembly.


Sir Ken Robinson's Tells TED How To Get Out Of America's Education 'Death Valley' 

Sir Ken Robinson outlines 3 principles crucial for the human mind to flourish — and how current education culture works against them. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational “death valley” we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility.

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we’re educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

Why don’t we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it’s because we’ve been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies — far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity — are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson says. It’s a message with deep resonance. Robinson’s TEDTalk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006. The most popular words framing blog posts on his talk? “Everyone should watch this.”
