Emma Watson vs. Malala Yousafzai

I am going to compare two very important speeches, in my opinion. Emma Watson’s was on the HeForShe Campaign and Malala Yousafzai’s promoting education for girls.

Bothe speeches were delivered at the United Nations headquarters in New York. Emma Watson, at the age of 24, launched a campaign called “HeForShe” on September 20, 2014. She is the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and she was cohosting this event when she gave the speech. She is a famous British actress and has been advocating for gender equality.
Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for going to school, and on July 12, 2013, at the age of 16, she delivered a speech promoting education for girls. She has become a champion for the rights of children everywhere to be educated.

Emma Watson began her speech by addressing “Your Excellences, UN Secretary General, President of the General Assembly, Executive Director of UN Women, and distinguished guests.” (Normaljean2, 2014) As for Malala she began her speech, not only this one but every other one she did, “In the name of God, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. Honorable UN Secretary General Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Respected President General Assembly Vuk Jeremic, Honorable UN envoy for Global education Mr. Gordon Brown, Respected elders and my dear brothers and sisters.” (A World at School, 2014) Both were very respectful.

I believe that the first challenge a speaker faces is to establish their credibility to speak. And Emma Watson started by mention the campaign, HeForShe, and asking for help from her audience. As for Malala Yousafzai, by saying “…it is a honor for me that today I am wearing a shawl of the late Benazir Bhutto” she established herself as a champion against violence and not as a victim. A lot of speakers start their speech by mentioning a hero, but she not only mentioned, she literally was…...

Malala Report

...Malala report Malala began fighting for women rights when she was 11. She started sharing her opinion against no education for girls in her country by posting on a blog, about how she felt and why. She posted how it wasn’t fair that girls shouldn’t be allowed to have an education just because they lived in Pakistan. She started saying things like how she thought that girls should be allowed to have an education no matter where they lived, and how the girls should be treated better than staying home, taking care of the livestock, and having children. What Malala fights for is not only for women’s rights in general but for women’s rights in education. Malala is a courageous woman, with a strong opinion, and feelings for what she believes in. People love her for that, but they hate her for that too. Malala was 14 when she got shot in the head and neck on October 9,2012. The bullet barely grazed her brain and almost killed her by inches. As her father put it: "When she fell, the person who attacked her wanted to kill her … She fell temporarily, she will rise again, she will stand again. She can stand now." From: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/oct/26/malala-yousafzai-everybodys-daughter-father After the attack, all the surgeons from Pakistan were at war to save Malala’s life. They managed to take out a bullet lodged in her neck. Unfortunately with a threat hanging over the family, they decided to airlift Malala to Britain, and hopefully have her......

Pobres Malalas

...POBRES MALALAS Malala Yousafzai aos quinze anos foi baleada na cabeça por membros do Talibã. Seu crime: querer estudar e aprender em um país muçulmano dominado por fundamentalistas religiosos. Diz Malala: “O Talibã também desenvolveu um sistema próprio de leis, que não tem nada a ver com o Islã. O Islã nos diz que a educação e o conhecimento são direitos de todas as pessoas. Então, eu acho que o Talibã não leu o Corão da forma apropriada. Eles precisam sentar e ler o texto novamente, com calma. O profeta Maomé nos ensina sobre igualdade, sofre fraternidade, sobre o amor ao próximo. O Talibã se esquece de tudo isso e só se lembra da jihad. Nós, meninas, temos nossa própria jihad pela qual lutar. Temos que lutar pelos nossos direitos e pela educação”. Parece que Malala também não leu o Corão de forma apropriada. O Corão não gosta das mulheres. Eis alguns exemplos: Alcorão Sura 4:34: "Os homens têm autoridade sobre as mulheres, pelo que Allah preferiu alguns a outros, e pelo que dependem de suas riquezas. Então, as íntegras são devotas, custódias da honra, na ausência dos maridos, pelo que Allah as custodiou. E aquelas de quem temeis a desobediência, exortai-as, pois, e abandonai-as no leito, e batei-lhes. Alcorão Sura 38:44: "E apanha, com tua mão, um feixe de capim, então, bate nela com ele, e não violes teu juramento..." Allah dizendo a Jó para bater em sua esposa. A herança do homem vale duas vezes a das mulheres Sura 4:11 O......

Malala Youzafsai Essay

...Malala Yousafzai… a young girl with a long short life. People as they get older, experiment things in their lives. It is a process that appears with the passing time. But for one girl was completely different, Malala Yousafsai, a girl from Pakistan, with only 16 years, has lived more than those have lived in decades. This teenager, is one of the most recognized faces around the world. In this essay, we are going to review her early life, her difficult times, and also how she has been recognized around the world. Yousafzai was born on 12 July 1997 into a Sunni Muslim family . She was given her first name Malala in honor to a famous poet and warrior woman from southern Afghanistan. Her last name,Yousafzai, comes from a large Pashtun tribal confederation that is predominant in Pakistan's Swat Valley, where she grew up. She lived with her two younger brothers, her parents, and two pet chickens. Yousafzai was educated in large part by her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai. At the age of 14, Malala lived a terrible episode. Taliban militants from Pakistan, banned girls education and there was not freedom , so she started to write in a BBC urdu blog about girls´ rights to study . this action result in a shot from a Taliban which went through her head, neck, and ended in her shoulder, when she was on a bus after taking an exam in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.

Malala

...We’ve all been victim to that; anyone who says that they haven’t is either lying or under the age of 13 years. So when a teenage girl undertakes such an incredible task of courage, one that adults cover in fear of doing, the event takes utmost significance. This is exactly what Malala Yousafzai, a huge inspiration to me and so many other girls did. Being only fourteen years old did not matter to Malala Yousafzai. In a short fourteen years she has won fame for fighting for peace, women’s rights and humanity. She won the National Peace award in Pakistan for all her efforts. In 2009- at only the age of 11- she fought Taliban insurgency that tried to take over her village of Swat. She wanted to set up her own political party which would campaign the right of young Pakistani girls to education. This girl- this heroine- was shot by a member of the Taliban, in the head and neck, and was in a critical condition. The Taliban called her work ‘obscenity’. I call it heroism. They tried to silence this girl forever- they tried, and are still trying, to silence the ideas of freedom, rights and equality forever. But they will not win this war, not while human beings like Malala breathe and fight. An army chief called Malala ‘an icon of courage and hope’. She’s more than that, she’s the dawn of a new generation, the leader of a revolution in which humanity and justice rules over the whole world. On her blog she writes about how she couldn’t go to school anymore and how she always was......

Malala Yousafzai

...Girls' Education Rights in Pakistan On October 9, 2012, in Mingora, Pakistan 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by two Taliban men when she was arriving home on a bus from school (Wilmore par 1). She was targeted for supporting and speaking out for girls' education rights (Wilmore par 3). In the summer of 2009, Pakistan's military claimed that they drove the group out of the area, but the Taliban are still attacking people there, especially those who support girls' education like Malala (Wilmore par 15). Under Islamic or religious law, all people, including women, should be granted educational rights and freedom in, not only Pakistan, but other parts of the world as well.To begin with, in Pakistan, it is hard for females to receive education because of the Taliban's strict religious laws and attacks (Wilmore par 6). In 2007, the Taliban arrived in Swat Valley, Pakistan, banning music and dancing (Jacobsen par 13), and they also banned women from activities like shopping (Wilmore par 6). The new laws made it uncomfortable for women to go out alone in public because many of their activities were restricted or banned (Jacobsen par 13). To make sure that citizens would not go against them, the Taliban forced them to accept the laws with the use of brutal punishments such as public whippings, bombings, and beheadings (Wilmore par 5). Then the Taliban started destroying schools with bombs, killing students, teachers, and passerby in the process, and they also......

Malala Yousafzai - the Real Revolution Fighter

...Невероятната съдба на Малала Юсафзай Томи Бисеров За нея не се говори много в родните медии. Истински значимите неща се случват докато ние се инатим пред превратностите на живота. През това време една тийнейджърка успява да се опълчи на талибанските групировки и да размаха пръст пред света като сигнал за несправедливостта и потъпкването на човешките права в Арабския свят. Тя е Малала Юсафзай, 17-годишното момиче от Пакистан, простреляно от талибани, докато пътува към училището си. Нейното име поражда нестихващ интерес у медиите от САЩ до Япония, хиляди хора стават нейни последователи, среща се с кралица Елизабет II, американския президент Обама и с председателя на Европарламента Мартин Шулц.

They Taliban began to shoot up schools. Many people where killed during this act of terrorism. During January of 2009 the Taliban had been slaughtering one to two people every night.

Analysis and Responsse: Emma Watson Address

...Kevin Kondrad Professor Kroesche English 102 Section 1025 March 9th, 2015 Analysis and Evaluation: Emma Watson Address Emma Watson is an aspiring leader for the feminist community with no signs of slowing down. All Watson wants is for men to believe in the definition of feminism and that one day men and women will truly be seen as equal counterparts politically, economically, and socially. Although her intent is well-meant; her movement “HeForShe”, along with her address was flawed in many ways. Watson starts off her address by saying “We want to end gender inequality-and to do that we need everyone to be involved.” (Warren) but from there on she only talks about men. Watson patronizes men; unable to see the full spectrum of consequences that come with change, and the illogical statistics and statements that she presents, consequently these flaws have opened the doors to numerous media backlashes. The invitation to men “How can we affect change in the world when only half of it is invited or feel welcome to participate in the conversation? Men-I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue too.” (Warren) was patronizing to men as if being formally invited on a magnific stage such as the United Nations headquarters was just the thing us men were waiting for. Mia McKenzie reinforces my idea with her sarcastic remarks “It’s not because of the prevalence of misogyny the entire world over. It’s just that no one’s......

Emma

...Emma decides that Jane and Mr Dixon were mutually attracted, and that is why she has come home. She shares her suspicions with Frank, who met Jane and the Campbells at a vacation spot a year earlier, and he apparently agrees with her. Suspicions are further fueled when a piano, sent by an anonymous benefactor, arrives for Jane. Emma feels herself falling in love with Frank, but it does not last to his second visit. The Eltons treat Harriet badly, culminating with Mr Elton publicly snubbing Harriet at the ball given by the Westons in May. Mr Knightley, who had long refrained from dancing, gallantly steps in to dance with Harriet. The day after the ball, Frank brings Harriet to Hartfield, she having fainted after a rough encounter with local gypsies. Harriet is grateful, and Emma thinks this is love, not gratitude. Meanwhile, Mrs Weston wonders if Mr Knightley has taken a fancy to Jane. Emma dismisses that idea and as she does not want Mr Knightley to marry, because her nephew Henry must inherit Donwell, the Knightley property. When Mr Knightley mentions the links he sees between Jane and Frank, Emma denies them, relying on Frank's words. Frank appears to be courting Emma. They flirt and banter together openly. He arrives late to the gathering at Donwell in June, while Jane leaves early. The next day at Box Hill, a local beauty spot, Frank and Emma continue the banter. Emma insults Miss Bates at that outing. 1898 illustration of Mr Knightley and Emma Woodhouse,......

Malala Yousafzai

...Malala Yousafzai the Influential Communicator and Education Activist Abstract This paper is about an amazing 17 year old girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban for championing the right of girls to receive an education. Many have asked “what are the qualities of an inspiring leader?” Research shows that leaders create enthusiasm, empower people, instill confidence and inspire the ones around them. In early 2009, Malala Yousafzai started by blogging about life under Taliban rule and that changed her life forever. Malala Yousafzai the Influential Communicator and Education Activist Malala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997 to Tor Pakai Yousafzai (mother) and Ziauddin Yousafzai (father) and into a Sunni Muslim family of Pashtun ethnicity. She grew up in Pakistan’s Swat Valley in a house in Mingora. She has two younger brothers and two pet chickens. Malala was educated largely by her father, who is a poet, school owner, and educational activist who runs a chain of schools known as the Khushal Public School. In 2008 Malala started speaking about education rights when her father took her to Peshawar to speak at a local press club. There she was known for saying “How dare the Taliban take away my basic right to education?” Later in 2008 when Malala was only 11, she wrote a blog under a pseudonym of “Gul Makai” for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule, the attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls.

Watson and based on the works of Pavlov and Bekhterev, two Russian psychologists who developed an animal training model known as stimulus-response (Classical Conditioning). In the early twentieth century a new movement in the field of Psychology was being felt in educational research — behaviorism. This is a theory proposed by J. B. Watson and based on the works of Pavlov and Bekhterev, two Russian psychologists who developed an animal training model known as stimulus-response (Classical Conditioning). Watson set the stage for behaviorism, which soon rose to dominate psychology. While behaviorism began to lose its hold after 1950, many of the concepts and principles are still widely used today. Conditioning and behavior modification are still widely used in therapy and behavioral training to help clients change problematic behaviors and develop new skills.
