Malala Yousafzai: Women's Quest For Equality

Satisfactory Essays
As a child I was told stories of the damsel in distress, the ones who needed saving. A lot has changed in that time. A woman is currently leading the race for the democratic nomination in America, Malala Yousafzai (a female) became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize and sports wise Jennifer Welter became the first female coach in the NFL when she was hired as an assistant coach. The list goes on. Moreover, it has become evident that what females need is not saving but yet the chance for opportunity and the chance for equality. Despite these accomplishments, all around the world women are placed lower then their male counterparts in almost every field, from education, health, economic participation and political empowerment.
