Malala Yousufzai was shot by the Taliban on her way to school in October. Now she’s headed home from the hospital. Here’s KVVU with more.

“Malala Yousufzai was released Thursday from Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital... hospital officials say she will return later this month or early february for reconstructive surgery to her skull.”

In a statement on the hospital’s website, the girls doctor explains Malala has been leaving the hospital on a regular basis to spend time with her family. Following these visit assessments and discussions with Malala, her medical team decided Malala would benefit the most if her recovery was spent at home with her parents and two brothers. And her doctor commends Malala’s recovery.

“Malala is a strong young woman and has worked hard with the people caring for her to make excellent progress in her recovery.”

And it appears Malala and her family will be calling Britain home for a while.

According to ITV news, Malala’s father was given a job by the Pakistani consulate in the U.K. He will take a position in education for at least three years. Sky News explains it also doesn’t appear safe for Malala and her family to return to Pakistan in the near future following more threats from the Taliban.

But Malala has certainly become an inspiration around the world. Sky News reports Malala has not only received thousands of goodwill messages, but has also looked to maintain her education by requesting books. The Muslim women's rights campaigner told Sky News she’s hoping girls and women alike will look at Malala and think...

“... if Malala, who is actually a child, can do it in a very difficult context in Pakistan, it should actually be easy for us... So I’m hoping they are thinking if she can do it, so can we."

The Associated Press reports Malala has become a symbol for the struggle for women's rights in Pakistan. And even made the the shortlist for Time magazine's "Person of the Year" for 2012.
