Malala yousafzais speech

We need all G20 heads of state, business leaders and advocates to join this fight. Malala Fund is working for a world where every girl can learn and lead. They are our most powerful weapons.

Dear Friends, on the 9th of Octoberthe Taliban shot me on the left side of my forehead. I raise my voice so that we will not lose another generation of girls.

In the same way, when we were in Swat, the north of Pakistan, we realised the importance of pens and books when we saw the guns. Because they were and they are afraid of change, afraid of the equality that we will bring into our society.

And let us build a better future right here, right now. I am Amina. They are our most powerful weapons. For some, restrictive gender roles mean girls marry as young as 13 years old. Some girls do not have access to working restrooms at school — and they must choose between their dignity or education. I have received thousands of good wish cards and gifts from all over the world. I am here to speak up for the right of education of every child. At that moment, my father and I knew we had to speak out — because we knew that life without education meant my friends and I would have no future at all. People like to ask me why education is important especially for girls. Go forward in peace. I know you are, too. You are here because someone believed in you, like my father believed in me. Dear sisters and brothers, we realise the importance of light when we see darkness. Poverty, ignorance, injustice, racism and the deprivation of basic rights are the main problems faced by both men and women. I raise my voice so that we will not lose another generation of girls.

We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back. My hopes are the same. With my voice, I hope to do the same for million girls who are out of school today.

They thought that the bullets would silence us. Their right to be treated with dignity.

Let this be the last time that an innocent child loses their life in war. No chance to pursue our own dreams, no chance to offer our contributions to the community we loved. I have received thousands of good wish cards and gifts from all over the world. Pakistan is peace-loving democratic country. And Islam is a religion of peace, humanity and brotherhood. Malala Fund is working for a world where every girl can learn and lead. I am Amina. Even if there is a gun in my hand and he stands in front of me.

For some, restrictive gender roles mean girls marry as young as 13 years old. Dear sisters and brothers, we are still walking down their road today.
