Halala Malala!

On March 8, 2014, International Women’s Day 2014, Malala Yousafzai said:
“Today is a day of celebration for women all around the world. We should take pride in all that we have accomplished over the years. We have come so far and overcome so much, and together we only grow stronger. While celebrating, though, we must take a moment to reflect on all our sisters around the world who continue to struggle every day for their rights. We must not move on without them. It is my hope and dream that one day every girl will go to school without fear or intimidation, and they will learn and grow to lead our future generations – as doctors, politicians, teachers, sisters and mothers. On this day we stand together and continue to grow stronger. And we will stand together tomorrow, and every day after as well.”


We as Mbewu Movement would like to salute our sister Malala Yousafzai for taking a stand in what she believed in the time that she did. Her braveness almost cost her her life and yet, she did not back down, she continued to fight without guns nor arms, with only words as her weapon and the support of those who believe in her.

Malala is the latest youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and during her world given glory, she kept reminding us that the battle against the injustices faced by young women continues, as the young Nigerian girls are still missing, 6months later.

Halala Malala, we salute you!

    Malala Yousafzai is such an inspiration to women and young women in particular.
    Her tireless and brave efforts have given a voice to young women who hold the key to unlock the world’s greatest potential. She embodies every bit of a role model what women could aspire to be.
    We as women should never doubt our abilities never give up on what we believe in, because everything at the right time comes together.

    1. Well said Naledi! “…everything at the right time comes together”…You yourself are an inspiration- in your little way, in your little corner. Thank you for sharing such positive insight on Malala and on women in general!
