International Day of the Girl: Malala Yousafzai’s Talks

As a part of UNICEF's annual campaign Malala Yousafzai, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle come together to talk about the role of education for girls.

On the international day of the girl, Malala Yousafzai and The Duke and Duchess of the Sussex held a virtual talk to celebrate women and encourage their voices to stand up for themselves. This was part of an annual campaign held by UNICEF.

During the talk, Malala Yousafzai began by discussing the theme of the topic and moved onto talking about the importance of the role of education in one’s life such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s.

“When young girls have access to education, everyone wins and everyone succeeds. It just opens doors for societal success at the highest level,” stated Meghan Markle as she thanked Malala Yousufzai. “What I had realised very early on was that when women have a seat at the table, conversations in terms of policy change, conversations in terms of legislation and the dynamics of the community are all shifted,” she further said, explaining why she was a part of the association of commonwealth universities.

Furthermore, Prince Harry along with Malala Yousafzai and Meghan Markle also acknowledged the importance of education for young girls and how the global pandemic has somehow restricted women’s access to it. He stated, “When you have an education, it provides money, it provides an income which makes you less susceptible to
disaster.” To open new doors and tackle all situations of life, and education is essential.

Malala Yousafzai further expressed the urgency of the situation at hands because over 20 million girls were in the works of dropping out of school due to the coronavirus outbreak. “They might be pushed towards child marriages or to become financial supporters of the family,” she said, talking about the need for investment in their futures.

“We must ensure they are protected, they do not drop out, and they should be able to return safely to school.”

Moreover, Malala Yousafzai also encouraged the ones privileged and capable enough to offer their services on her website, Malala Fund, where such people could provide helps to those who are in need of them.

Malala Yousafzai has always been a strong advocate for females all across the globe, especially in Pakistan. She was assassinated at the age of 15 due to her activism. With the help of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, she was able to spread this message further and official platform.
