"You also mentioned in your book that your father always taught you to have a voice, and that's unusual. Isn't it? Why do you think your father is a man in that part of the world that is so different? You know, I have met many fathers in the refugee camps as well. And because I'm mentioning this because often we talk about fathers in these developing countries or the so-called poor countries or refugee countries, we think of them as misogynists take people not building in their daughters. But there are many who are challenging the status forward challenging the current mindset in society, and you know, my father he has also written a book about his story called let her fly, and he talks about his own journey in his on struggle. And he says that the first person he came across in the first bus. He had to fight was himself his own mindset. And I think you know, that's what we need to teach men to find themselves and the torture that in the Heddon in my father believed in me because he saw that his on five sisters could not get an education they lost their future. So my father said in when he would have his own daughter. He would allow her to read and write and to be who she wants to be and. He allowed me to speak. He he was a feminist before. He knew the word feminist. How about one of these girls that you write about near book? So I've mentioned many goes stories, you know, from Syria to Iraq to what Malla and to Yemen and one girl that was did has just inspired me. I met her in two thousand fifteen. And she is a refugee from Yemen. And I I'm, you know, just listening to her story of how she overcame that whole struggle from of her journey from Yemen to then I'm going to look for name because I forgot how many.

"On. Yes. Thank you. In the chose very high of what a show. Find any here. Nice to have you with us. Now wanna really sort of remind people of your extraordinary story, you grew up in swat valley Pakistan, had a peaceful life until two thousand eight when the Taliban to govern announced that no girl would be allowed to attend school anymore. You're eleven years old and you start to speak out against this. Now, what gave you the courage to do it? Yes. That was exactly ten years ago when the thought of unannounced the bed on occasion in a sentimental, waking up that morning and thinking that my who was taken away from me. My my dreams were taken away from it was not just not having access to books in classrooms. But just that independence that you want in your life as a woman that is taken away from you. So for me if I wanted to have a future I had to speak out. And that's why I decided to raise my voice and now ten years have been fuss since then. But I've, you know, met many girls around the world, and I wanted to share their stories who have also been through the same situations around the world. So this is a global issue. That's why do you think that the Taliban this case, but it happens in other places in the world. Why men don't want women to be independent to be to get ahead in the world? Why do you think that's true? Well, I'm struggling to understand it. I think fuss -ly they just don't want women to be powerful it on want women to see in the same positions as themselves. They don't want women next to them. And you already see it in the western countries as well women, not been accepted as political leaders is presidents prime ministers and just people find other excuses to justify their opinions, but within their minds within their heart. It's actually just that misogyny just that sexism that they do not believe that women can be leaders. And for the thought of it was cleared was that. If goes getting powered, you know to education than they become leaders, and they have a voice, and they will poke against sexual violence, and they'll talk against early child marriages than they will talk about their rights and their property rights, and you know, their jobs, and they would excuse them. Right. Yeah. And they they lose their power. Yes. And that's something that you know, when I meet these guys in the refugee camps. You know, that's what they want all of the goals right now globally. They have this expiration for education for learning because the guys are aware that that is the only way forward for them. In two thousand twelve you are on your school bus and a gunman came on and and shot you and you survive and you Senate major stronger. How I think when they wanted to silence me that was the gold and they wanted our family to be silent. As while. They wanted other activists as well in our region to be quiet, not speak the truth, and I survived and my voice when even louder not.

And Senator Elizabeth Warren is the first female democrat to nounce, she's exploring run, and she's social media to reach out to voters to go. Look. His joining this video. It's great take your from you. Hold on a sec. I'm gonna get me. Byu? My husband Bruce is now in here. Sure. Where joy is that. I don't interpret that as a joke joy thing. She was joking about getting the beer joking. Based on the fact that when George W Bush was running against Al Gore. They said, oh, he's a stiff George W you can have a beer with him. And that's what that's about. That's an Omar. I think George Joe in her announcement to run video, I think that she's kidding. I do I mean if she's not in John needs to talk to her political. Yes. She needs some held a political instincts are way off if that was intended to be a joke. I dunno. I she we've she's been on the show. We've had her a couple times. She does seem she's a hokey person like a hokey personality and many hokey. She's like hokey she's slide a former teacher, right? She's like all my my hokey. You're like a teacher from Brooklyn. She's like a teacher. Yeah. She's I don't know. It seems a very authentic to me. Well, she's very she's a substantive person. Hover magazine five months ago with the headline of front runner for all intents and purposes, five months ago, she was believed to be the person up and coming in the Democratic Party. I don't think anybody really believes that right now. Pulling wise, Geno, we can't trust. All polls, the people like Baidoa work and Cory Booker are ahead of her. We'll be fascinating. And I'm so glad we get to talk about politics on the show today is that because I've been thinking about this all weekend over in two thousand sixteen we learned that the establishment of the Republican party is insignificant voters voted who they wanted for what we're gonna find out going into twenty twenty is if the establishment really has any poll within their party like they did with Hillary or if the vein of Alexandria, okay? Zeo Cortes, the socialist democrat in that vein is going to end up being the nominee. How many? Warren bird. To be listening for them. Let me just say this about of cost CEO Cortez. She just got in on Thursday. She was sworn in. Yes. And she's very opinionated, which we like, we like opinionated women, but it is very very difficult when people make accusations when you you say, you know, the Democrats have have done nothing that they've the establishment of the Democrats have done nothing. And I just want to throw this out to you. John lewis. Oh, yeah. Wasn't sitting still right? Diane Feinstein wasn't sitting still there are a whole bunch of people in the Democratic Party who have been busting their asses to make sure that women get what they need people get within each shouldering get what they need so on you just got in there. And I know you got lots of good ideas. But I would encourage you. To sit still for minute. And learn job. And. You know, and just you know, because there are people in that party who have been working their tails off, they know a lot, and they know we could and you could learn some stuff from them. And I just feel like, you know. You don't have to be born into it. You don't have to know it when you step out. But before you start pooping on people, and what they've done you gotta do something to we'll see has wealth. Well, there is absolutely. Prove yourself.

"In a TV drama for killing aids. No. So as far as the Golden Globes kickoff, it's the kicks off award season. All the time. The hunt is still on for an Oscar host. And even though Kevin arts as is still valuating, whether you'll do it C N N's, Don lemon says apologies on enough. Take a look we need to talk about how people who may have messed up can become allies as well. Because apologizing and moving on does not make the world a better place where people who are gay or people who are transgender being an ally. Does so Kevin no one is against you no-one said that you should be fired or any of that what they want for. You is to bring light to this to be an ally. So I guess Kevin's jokes were hot topics on Friday, and the movie night school was mistakenly referred to reference and the filmmakers asked us to re this. Statement are filmmaking team worked extremely hard to tell heartfelt comedy about a man with an undiagnosed learning disability and how he overcomes those struggles the only mention of anything or anyone from the LGBTQ community is that one of the characters is revealed to be gay. And she is the reason he overcomes the obstacles we stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ community, and our desire to have three dimensional representation in film and television of all people. So it was the wrong Kevin Hart movie. I referenced the wrong, it's another movie is problematic. Okay. Okay. Get hard. I believe it's the name of it. Right. And I have articles I will tweet if everyone to know about the problematic issues in that movie. Okay. Well, sometimes, you know, we get we started talking about stuff. I'm and you know, it's live TV, and we misrepresent so we took care of it. But I think that the Oscars should have four hosts. And I think Kevin should be one of them. He should not. The only host, but he should be one. I think Melissa McCarthy should be all I Kevin can be a co host. I think that can Kim hung. But did I. I should also be a cohost which would also put him in that arena of being the first Asian American to host the Oscars and he's in one of the big hits of the year. So and then I think they need to find one other person and that should be fine. You know, his everybody. Listen, we all have stuff in our acts that we have done that are backfired and kicked our butts is just the way it is. But if you're the person that has been commented on it doesn't sit well with you. I get why people are upset, but I do think that there should be four. And maybe they'll they'll get together and do that because host announced yet for now. There's no one. Announced and they ever done for hosts and they've done four to eight nine twelve seventy five. Very much like this show. We'll be right back..

"So you the target of a conspiracy theory, and that's one of the reasons why you made this three part series about conspiracy theories and fake news. You were living and reporting from Pakistan at the time, what was the conspiracy theory about you. So when I lived in Pakistan in two thousand ten I made a documentary about Malala Yousafzai, it was some of the first public reporting about her ever when she was still a schoolgirl. This is before the attempted assassination, and she was an activist. That was a local activist who was standing up to the Taliban, which at the time were bombing many schools for girls, and I made a film about Malala. And then after she was shot, which was three years later. A lot of these conspiracy theories started popping up that I was a CIA spy and that I had found her and staged her activism. As a way to stand up to the Taliban, and as a way to demean Islam, and this conspiracy theory really took off and all sorts of press in Pakistan and all sorts of websites and even national TV stations started reporting on this conspiracy and even several years after that again one night when I was living in Europe, my Twitter account started blowing up and one of the most popular TV talk show host in the country. Had started a second disinformation campaign, and he claimed that I was one of the terrorist bombers that had blown up the school in Peshawar where dozens of school kids lost their lives, and he showed an image of one of the dead terrorists. And then showed an image next to it. That was a photo of myself and both of us had white skin and blue eyes and the terror. I was from a certain tribe there that has light is the Afridi tribe, and he claimed that I was one of the attackers. And that I was dead, and I was getting hundreds if not thousands of messages and being tagged on Twitter of people asking if I was alive or not. And why I took the lives of these school kids. Why target you like that? I mean, clearly d- doctor you were being hated for documenting a girl who was an activist on behalf of education for girls in Pakistan. So I make it seem like you're blowing up at school. I mean, it's the opposite of what you would do. I think anti-american conspiracies and Pakistan are mainstream. They're not fringe whatsoever. And anytime that there is chaos internal chaos in the country such as the terrorism threat that they've suffered from since nine eleven there is a sort of impulse to blame external factors or external enemies. And when you have a terrorist problem that is killing kids at an alarming rate and blowing up schools for girls, creating a disinformation campaign that this is the plot of a foreign country is a tactic. That can convince the local population the Pakistani public that this is not our problem. This is the problem of other people who don't like us, and this is part of a much broader. I mean, I was the victim of a much broader disinformation campaign that blames the US for all sorts of internal factors and earlier we talked about a kernel of truth. And of course, the kernel of truth here is that the US has medaled and interfered in Pakistan since its inception in nineteen forty seven. And we have a long history include including a nutso pleasant history in the nineteen eighties of propping up some of these terrorist groups, so they lean on that kernel of truth in order to add credibility to the more recent disinformation campaigns, including the one about myself and other American officials. Who are meddling who are meddling in the country today or so these conspiracy theories claim and they really stick. I mean, they go mainstream and after this after this report came out, I received a death threat through a statement that al-qaeda put out and that was circulated in one of the local language newspapers. In the city of push our? Mean these things are really serious..

Who's going to buy this? Who would want to care about parts of my life story this, you know? And so those fears It's unbelievable. I mean, even for somebody like me, those fears are immediately. I mean, not immediately there. They're growing as the as the due date as the launch take Is upon us upon me and the voices get louder and louder, So it's it's unbelievable. You can take somebody that has a lot of innate confidence like I do and still the you know, insecurities in the fears are there And I so I need to work on luck Of course. Uh, the at the goal is one of the goals is to sell a lot of the a copies of these of this book. But I've already complex the biggest goal which is finishing and writing. In my opinion. An incredible buck. Something that I've spent a tremendous amount of time on It was very difficult to do. And I've must be proud of myself for just doing that, You know. So it's finding the positive, finding the, The other points of strength when there are, you know, you start to when I start to get feel nervous or scared that the you know, this isn't going to be a success after myself.

Book was excellent. All angst, chair number one fan head number Ogbeha But uh, but I do need to do need to say we are we're talking. So you, you mentioned a fear that you have of obviously got fears that, uh, I've dealt with in the past Center. And are always dealing with on a constant basis, because if you're doing anything that matters to you, You're going to be experiencing some level of fear. At some point, If you're not feeling any fear ever in your life, I would say that you may not be pushing yourself enough. At serious or you are a robot, will her You're a robot yet.

You know, I mean, if you're if you're just doing the same thing every single day you not really in and nothing is ever challenging you than it's very difficult to find growth in that.

If you're not feeling scared ever will, then you really need to take a hard look at what you're doing. Because some of life's greatest moments come out of fear, Right?

There are people who fear things that are life threatening. You know things where people can actually die from it. So I want to make sure that we bring in a perspective from someone that I admire and Anam air, and I know you admire hers as well.
