Malala Yousufzai Is Reunited With Family, Expected to Make Full Recovery

Malala Yousufzai, the outspoken Pakistani teenaged education activist who was brutally attacked by the Taliban earlier this month, isn't going to let a bullet to the head stop her. "When she fell, Pakistan stood. And this is a turning point," her father told the Associated Press today. "She will rise again, she will stand again. She can stand now."


Malala has become a tremendous symbol of the potential of people power—even little people—to resist the retrograde demands of the Taliban in Pakistan. Imagine living in a place where simply going to school and being a girl at the same time is an offense that could bring death.

Back in 2009, the New York Times made a half-hour documentary profiling then 11-year-old Malala and her father—who was employed in the radical act of being headmaster of the all girls school where his daughter was a student. They spent 48 hours in the Yousufzai household, just as the Taliban were due to begin enforcing the end to education for 50,000 schoolgirls in the Swat Valley.

Malala's father tells the reporters he's prepared to die to fight for his school. Fast forward three years and it's his daughter who fought for her life in a Birmingham hospital. Doctors are restructuring her skull, but she's expected to make a full recovery.

There's a change.org petition to call for Malala to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Amnesty International also has created a page Stand With Malala where you can send her messages directly. That's one tough little girl. Let's tell her just how inspiring she is.
