Malala has become a symbol for girls' education in the West. In this flash seminar, we will discuss the ways in which Malala has been lauded in the West though mistrusted in the East for her aims, actions, and effect on girls' education worldwide. We will explore the following questions: Has the "Malala Phenomenon" changed things for better or worse? What does Malala's fame in the West mean for girls' education throughout the world? What is next for girls' education in Pakistan?
