? {Resenha} Eu sou Malala: A história da garota que defendeu o direito à educação e foi baleada pelo Talibã Autoras: @malala e Christina Lamb Editora: @companhiadasletras Páginas: 360 Ano: 2013 . _______? . Malala Yousafzai nasceu em 1997 no vale do Swat, Paquistão. Conseguiu a magnífica proeza de ser a pessoa mais jovem a ser laureada com o Prêmio Nobel da Paz. Sua luta é referência na defesa dos direitos humanos e do acesso das meninas à educação. Tornou-se mundialmente conhecida após sofrer um atentado do talibã: em outubro de 2012 foi atingida por um tiro na cabeça quando estava numa van escolar. Em 2013 foi considerada pela revista Time uma das 100 pessoas mais influentes do mundo. . _______? . Eu sou Malala é a biografia da jovem escrita com a colaboração da jornalista britânica Cristina Lamb. É a filha mais velha de uma família harmoniosa; seu pai é dono de uma escola e um fervoroso defensor dos direitos humanos, que sempre incentivou o desenvolvimento estudantil de Malala. Porém, nascer mulher num país onde o feminino é visto como inferior e impuro sempre foi um desafio para ela e sua família. . _______? . O livro nos mostra a formação do Paquistão, suas belezas, seus costumes, a organização da sociedade, as idas e vindas dos governantes, a religião islâmica, a ascensão do Talibã ao poder, a violência e a decadência de valores sociais. Nos mostra a importância do apoio familiar na conquista de um ideal, na manutenção da bondade e da perseverança apesar das dificuldades. Malala enfatiza a todo momento que com educação o povo, e principalmente as mulheres, conseguem questionar a vida e os sistemas sociais, o que para muitos é perturbador. Leitura obrigatória para todos, faz refletir sobre qual é o nosso papel no mundo e o que estamos fazendo para torna-lo mais justo e igualitário. . . . . . #bookria #eusoumalala #malalayousafzai #malala #iammalala #malalabook #instalivros #booksinstagram #leitora #lendo #instadelivros #instaliterario #instagramliterario #cristinamclamb #companhiadasletras #malalafund #paquistão #leiamulheres #lendomulheres #educaçãoinfantil #booksgram

Thanks @randomhouse for gifting me this modern classic! ? ••• I’m finishing February off with I know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou. I’m almost half way through, and it’s both a marvel and heartbreaking. I think that’s because it’s still the beginning of Maya’s story. But I’m still finding pieces of wisdom on almost every page. ••• “Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” ••• ••• What book are you ending February with? • • • #mayaangelou #iknowwhythecagedbirdsings #modernclassics #literature #bibliophile #fromabove #flatlaystyle #flatlay #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #allthebooks #bookseverywhere #reader #igreads #instareads #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #cozybooks #bookworm #bookishlove
