“Let’s not make it scary to say you’re a feminist” Malala tells Emma


Malala Yousafzai has told Emma Watson about not describing herself, the performer’s address to world leaders made her change her mind.

The 18-year old human rights and instruction winner from Pakistan met with the film star in the premier of a documentary about her, called He Named Me Malala. Yousafzai started when she was only 12, speaking out on schooling.

She added: “It is a tricky word. As soon as I heard it the very first time that I heard some ones that were favorable and some negative replies. I hesitated in saying not or I feminist? “Then after hearing your address I determined there is no way and there is nothing wrong by calling yourself a feminist.

Watson said she discovered the entrance proceeding of Yousafzai and posted a video of the interview on her Facebook page. She said: “Possibly the most moving moment of now for me was when Malala addressed the problem of feminism. I’d initially intended to inquire Malala whether or not she was a feminist but studied to see whether she’d used this word, to give you a bit of history.

To my complete shock Malala identified herself and put the question back into one of her own responses.

Perhaps feminist is not the simplest word to use … but she did it anyhow. “I have talked before on exactly what a contentious word feminism is now. More lately, I’m discovering what a factionalised movement it’s also. We all are going towards an identical aim.

“Let’s not make it scary to say you’re a feminist. I want to make it a welcoming and inclusive movement. Let’s join our hands and move together so we can make real change. Malala and I are pretty serious about it but we need you.”

Let us go together so we are able to make real change and join our hands. Malala and I are quite serious about it but we want you.” Yousafzai continues to be residing with her family considering that the assassination attempt in Birmingham. She’s studying to get A-levels in maths, economics, history and religious studies and strategies could include going to Stanford, or Oxford University, in California.
