De-Stabilizing the Emergent Binary of Empowered Girl vs. Muslim Girl

Producing Malala as the exception is a technique of power. Exception proceeds by individualizing and abstracting her from the local environment and cultures, and connecting her positive attributes to another source, such as her formal education, desire for success, and ambition. Her courage is, then, not read as grounded in local cultural practices that valorize social justice. Instead, she is positioned as a singular force against local customs and cultural elements. Marking Malala as the exception sustains the trope of the “oppressed Muslim girls” against which the concept of “empowered girls” is maintained. The discourse on empowered girls, thus, rearticulates Malala in its own terms, and distances her from other Muslim girls. She is made simultaneously to stand in for, represent and symbolize the oppressed Muslim girls, and positioned as the empowered girl who is not one of them. It denies other Muslim girls similar forms of empowered subjectivities. More importantly, it sustains the façade of Islam as an oppressive religion, making interventions—such as through universal education of girls, or empowerment projects—necessary and even ethically imperative

i have to reblog this again

Rebloging this because he is so right. The brain Drain in Somali is a huge issue and one of the reasons why the conflict is still going on. For a few of you who don’t understand Somali comoletely or haveabit of trouble .

The guy is an interpertor and he’s saying that we shouldn’t rely on the Somali government to give its people stuff especially because its not established and that we shouldn’t really care just about the money were getting from working abroad.

He gives an anecdote about the Somali presidents bodyguard who was shot by alshaabab after being threatened numerous times. He starts to tear up when he talks about how they had to wait for the turkish embassy to take him for medical attention aborad but that they said they coudn’t until the next major accident which occured 11 months after he got shot.

He becomes really tearful when he talks about that fact that everyone who was sent with him was dead and that the doctors couldn’t do anything when they found out he was paralysed because he didn’t have a guardian with him and for the first day he was there he was starving because he couldn’t communicate his wants.
