Stand with Malala

Stand with Malala

Malala Day celebrates the birthday of Malala Yousafzai, the girl who was shot for bravely defying the Taliban and attending school. This year, she has traveled to Nigeria to see the plight of girls, like her, in great danger for simply going to school.

Malala wants to use Malala Day this year to ask everyone to raise their voices to say: we are #strongerthan those who use fear, intimidation and violence to stand in the way of every girl and boy's basic right to an education.

Malala epitomizes strength  to overcome oppression. Just like Nadine in my book, my book is a fiction, but based om many factual scenarios.

I take you to a journey of modern day oppression.
This story traces the life of Nadine, a girl born to Indian parents. It embodies the issues of a Kiwi girl, Nadine, growing up in conflicting cultures and getting lost in her environment.
Nadine grows up to overcome her problems to help women who suffered from physical and mental violence, domestic violence, rape, pornography, swinging, incest, bullying, sex with minors, sex slavery and human trafficking.

Camille Yahm‎ comment on Cry of Oppressed Women

I am not familiar with this book, Ann, but would like to be! This is a very significant topic in our world today, but women have been oppressed in various cultures down through the centuries. It must end.
