Standard care for a newborn requires months of time and complete devotion. When a career is thrown into the mix, the life of a mother is chaotic.

These topics are rarely discussed with stay-at-home moms, but become normal conversations with a career mom.
If look at the history of the world, mostly women had been deprived from their righteous rights and employment opportunities while men were enjoyed superiorities. Men considered women’s most important business housewife to cook, clean and raise children. After long struggle, women in the majority of countries, “won the right to vote and increased their educational and job opportunities. Possibly most important, they fought for and to a large degree accomplished a reevaluation of traditional views of their role in society,” (women’s international center, 1994, p 1).

The Taliban attempted to mute Malala’s vice, but ultimately her message was to powerful to be suppressed. Malala creates her own space to be heard and voiced her opinion despite being in that inferior position in society.
