Gender Issues at July 3, 2015


Malala Yousafzai is the courageous 18 year-old advocate for universal education and girls’ rights, who was targeted for her activism and shot by the Taliban in October 2012.  After recovering, she returned to school and continues to campaign for every child’s right to education — including, she has said, “education for the sons and daughters of the Taliban and all terrorists and extremists.”  In 2014, Malala was the co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.  July 12, Malala’s birthday, was dubbed “Malala Day” by the U.N. in 2013.  “Malala day is not my day,” she said, “Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights.”

In honor of Malala Yousafzai, the themes for the month are individualism, religious tradition, and gender issues.  We have a great line up of essays scheduled this month, which began today with our newest columnist, Anna Walther.
