Unit 2. HUMAN RIGHTS
Lesson 2. INTOLERANCE
The rights of children.
Children are vulnerable because they are not physically or mentally mature. For this reason they need special care and protection. During the 20th century, there were important developments in the defense of children's rights:
- The Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child, in 1924.
- The creation of UNICEF, in 1946.
- The Declaration of the Rights of the Child, in 1959.
- The Convention of the Rights of the Child, in 1989.
- The World Summit for Children, in 1990.
Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. She is known mainly for human rights advocacy for education and for women in her native Swat Valley in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Yousafzai's advocacy has since grown into an international movement.
