Malala Yousafzai is a 17 year old Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize awardee. She is known mainly for human rights advocacy for education and for women in her native Swat valley in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of northwest Pakistan.

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was South Africa’s first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation.

Malala Yousafzai vs Nelson Mandela

They are both similar in the way that they fight for change in places that where there is a lot of resistance against their visions and goals to create something better. They are similar in the case that they don’t give up, even after all that has happened to them. They have both been tried stopped, but in different ways. Malala was attempted assassinated by the Taliban and Nelson Mandela was jailed for half his life. They just kept on fighting and it paid out in the end. Because of Malala, there is bigger focus on equality for women and education for women than before. Nelson Mandela succeeded as much as he could. He got rid of apartheid, became president, and got rid of the ‘’White regime’’ in South Africa.
