Malala Yousafzai: ‘I have a right’

October 22, 2013


Women and girls in countries such as Pakistan and Afghanistan ought to have the right to attend school without fear of murderous religious fanatics.  They also ought to have the right to live without flying killer drones overhead.

The best way to defeat the Taliban is by supporting education.  What is the best way to do that?  The answer to that question should come from educators in Pakistan and Afghanistan, not from somebody like me.  I don’t know what kind of help they want or whether, at this point, whether they want help from us Americans at all.
