Why is my daughter so strong?

Have you watched this inspiring TED talk  by Yousafzai -  Malala's dad -please do!






"Why is my daughter so strong?” Yousafzai asks. “Because I didn’t clip her wings." Indeed a lesson that many a people in this patriarchal society will do good to learn - just let your wife, sibling, daughter, friend be. A simple answer to a question that sadly hounds quite a few gals- ladies even today.

Linking this to WT fest of words day Day 2. The task for the day is "Answer a question".


PS: for those of you who love your books,  I will definitely recommend "I am Malala" the inspiring story of the father- daughter who Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban
