Malala Yousafzai’s Sspeech Review

Table of Content

Malala explains how much so many people has helped her learn and been so inspiring. She refused to sit and watch education be stripped from women and is going to fight what she believes in.

In Yousafzai’s speech she used patho, for example when she said, ¨When I was in Swat, which was a place of tourism and beauty, suddenly changed into a place of terrorism. I was just ten that more than 400 schools were destroyed. Women were flogged. People were killed. And our beautiful dreams turned into nightmares¨(Malala). This quote is pathos because it shows that Malala wasn’t the only woman who was stripped from her education, but she was one of thousands of women who also were threatened.

In Yousafzai’s speech she also used ethos, for example in the speech she said, ¨I am also honored to receive this award together with Kailash Satyarthi, who has been a champion for children’s rights for a long time¨(Malala). This quote is ethos because it shows that Malala is receiving the award Kailash, who has been working extremely hard for both reach the same goal and succeed.

In Yousafzai’s speech she also used logos, for example she said, ¨ My sister Amina, from Nigeria. Where Boko Haram threatens, and stops girls and even kidnaps girls, just for wanting to go to school¨(Malala). This quote is logos because Malala is showing us that the lack of education is not just in her country, but all over the world and can affect anyone.

Some rhetorical devices she uses in her speech is repetition and imagery. An example of repetition in her speech is when she uses ¨Let’s..¨, ¨Let us…¨, and ¨Let this…¨ to identify the audience as one, and that everyone can come together as family, or a team and put a stop to the hate against women and their education. An example of imagery used in Malala speech is, ¨Though I appear as one girl, though I appear as one girl, one person, who is 5 foot 2 inches tall, if you include my high heels. I am not a lone voice, I am not a lone voice, I am many.¨ It describe how she may just be one girl physically, but she has over 66 million voices for that many girls who don’t have education. She shows us that she has a voice loud enough, and big enough, to speak up for thousands of people who can´t speak for themselves.
