Malala, who survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban for supporting girls’ education, accused world leaders of going ‘silent’ as she addressed the Action for Afghanistan rally opposite Downing Street, central London, on Sunday afternoon.

The protest came as part of a campaign aimed at sparking renewed focus on Afghan women and girls becoming increasingly oppressed by the Taliban, which took over the country after the withdrawal of Western troops last year.

Addressing the crowd, Ms Yousafzai said her story is not ‘unique’ and that she can imagine what Afghan women and girls are going through since the regime banned their secondary education.

She said: ‘That is why I’m here today because, in the face of gender apartheid in Afghanistan, our leaders have gone silent.

‘(Being) fragmented in their response has allowed the Taliban to increase their oppression of women and girls.

‘Each of us who have the freedom to speak must not look away. We must call on our leaders to act with urgency.’

Malala was a teenage education activist when the Pakistani Taliban hunted her down.

They stopped her school bus and shot her in the face but she survived and two years later won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Addressing UK leaders specifically, Ms Yousafzai called for the Government to hold a global summit on women and girls’ rights in Afghanistan as well as establish asylum and resettlement routes for at-risk women.

‘To the UK government, step forward more boldly and live up to your claim to be a global champion for girls’ education and gender equality,’ she said.

‘Use your convening power to hold a global summit where world leaders can agree on bold and coordinated actions to ensure women and girls’ rights are upheld in Afghanistan.

‘Demand the release of women activists in Afghanistan and welcome at-risk Afghanistan women by establishing asylum and resettlement routes.’

Ms Yousafzai today also urged those who can speak out in solidarity with Afghan women and girls to do so, adding: ‘We will go safely to our homes. For them, defying the Taliban means risking their lives.

‘We cannot allow their sacrifices to be in vain. We cannot allow a generation of girls to give up on their dreams and disappear behind the walls of their houses.’

The Taliban is known for its extreme interpretation of the Sharia law – Islam’s legal system which is based on the Quran and teachings from scholars.

It acts as a code of conduct for Muslims but some interpretations mean women can be treated harshly in terms of what they wear and what they are seen as being allowed to do.

Previously, under Taliban rule from 1996 to 2001, women weren’t allowed to work or be educated.

They were banned from wearing certain items of clothing, such as shoes with high heels, and could not leave the house without a male chaperone.

In its latest crackdown on female freedoms this month, the Taliban banned women from funfairs, parks and gyms.

The Taliban launched a 10-day takeover of Afghanistan in August last year as United States-led forces withdrew from the country.

This was despite billions of dollars being spent by the US and Nato over nearly two decades to build up Afghan security forces.

The takeover culminated in the fall of the capital Kabul on August 15 as president Ashraf Ghani fled to Abu Dhabi and admitted the Taliban had won.

Malala’s speech came after protesters marched from Park Lane to Downing Street, carrying placards reading: ‘Women’s rights are universal rights’ and chanting: ‘Free Afghan women. We want justice. We want freedom.’

Marches are also set to take place across cities in Canada and the US on Sunday with organisers saying they plan to stage further protests in other countries.
