There is a person in Pakistan that is also starting a social movement that we should keep in our thoughts tonight. A teenage girl was blogging about women’s rights in her country and was shot.
Malala Yousufza, 14 was gunned down as she came home from School earlier this week. She blogged and spoke out about the Taliban who use fear and pressure to force girls to stay home. Malala argues girls must be allowed to get an education. In an interview earlier this year she said that education was the key to getting the Taliban out of Pakistan as they fear it. The Taliban have taken responsibility for shooting her and say they will kill her if she survives. Personally I will keep her in my thoughts and follow her story throughout this class to see if she drives further social change in Pakistan.
