Pakistani teen shot by Taliban keeps fighting for women's rights

 
Last October, Pakistani teen Malala Yousufzai, 15, was shot in the head by Taliban members because of her dedication to fighting for women’s education and civil rights in the Middle East. Since then, she’s been recovering in a British hospital. And today, she was able to leave to recover at home with her parents in the U.K.

 

Though she’ll still be returning for reconstructive surgery and check-ups, she’s doing well enough to head home on a permanent basis—and continue supporting the cause that nearly killed her. She was shot at point-blank range because she vehemently disagreed with the Taliban’s interpretation of Islam, which limits a girl’s right to education. She was on her way home from school when it happened.

 

We’re thrilled to see her waving as she leaves the hospital, and we know that she’ll take up the standard for women’s rights once again…and hopefully encourage and inspire other girls and women to do so, as well. Congrats, Malala, and get well soon!

 

Leave your best wishes and congratulations below, babes!
