Malala Yousafzai, who advocated for young women all over the world at the risk of her own life, has emerged as a worldwide peace icon. At the age of 14 she started to fight for education and Women Empowerment in her home town of swat valley of Pakistan. In the memoir she describes numerous barriers that exist in education, particularly for girls in Pakistan. This present study explores some of the main barriers to education that Malala experienced and how they affected her life and the lives of many other girls in Pakistan. The findings suggest that gender discrimination, poverty, the Taliban's influence, and lack of quality education and infrastructure are significant barriers to education in Pakistan. It also tries to examine the situation of life under Taliban’s rule and how she became an advocate of education and global symbol of resistance against the Taliban’s oppression.
