Review: We are displaced from Malala Yousafzai

Review: We are displaced from Malala Yousafzai

Hello dears! How are you? I hadn’t had time to share the last book I read in 2019: We are displaced, from the activist and Nobel Peace Prize, Malala Yousafzai, here’s the review!

Book: We are displaced
Author: Malala Yousafzai (Pakistan)
Year: 2019

Of the topics that we have heard most in 2019, are perhaps that of migration and refugees around the world, as well as women’s rights. And this book is about both.

Malala Yousafzai was known in 2012 after the attack she suffered by the Talibans in her own country because she promoted the education of girls and adolescents. After winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, she has dedicated herself to defend this cause through its foundation, Malala Fund.

And this book is a compilation of stories of girls and teenagers around the world, who have had to flee their country, often in inhuman conditions, in order to start a new life.

Without a doubt, this book shows a reality from which we cannot escape: the life of migrants fleeing due to violence in their countries of origin. These are stories that leave a lump in your throat, which shows the courage and will of these girls who have done everything possible to overcome the obstacles and start a new life.

It is likely that many of us know some migrant or refugee. We are likely to meet someone who has had to leave their country in order to have a better life. Mexico is not the exception – even one of the stories in this book happens here. Therefore, I think it is totally worth reading it.

And if you’re touched like me, you can start investigating more about the cause and find ways to help.

I highly recommend this book!
