Class Dismissed: Response by Jorden Greene
Malala Yousafzai's story is an incredible one. I feel that very few, if any, kids in our society would actually risk their lives to get educated I know I wouldn't. This documentary really shows how privileged we are here in America. In Swat the Taliban are succeeding to "stop educating girls, through guns." This is extremely unfortunate, women were banned from shopping and 50,000 girls were refused education. That is a terrible world to live in especially if you are a woman. A quote that really hit me hard was "This is a very precious day for me." She seemed very excited to go back to a land of such distress. I feel like the suppression of female rights will never end over there.
