Malala Yousafzai, 15, was put forward by three Norwegian MPs, who praised her 'commitment so threatening to extremists that they tried to kill her'.
Malala was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman at point blank range as she travelled home from school by bus on October 9. Her attacker boarded the vehicle in Pakistan's Swat Valley and asked for her by name before firing three shots at her in front of her horrified friends. She was singled out after writing a blog criticising the Islamist organisation.
The 15-year-old is now an internationally recognised symbol of opposition to the Taliban's drive to deny women education, and against religious extremism in a country where women's rights are often flouted.

For once a well deserved recipient of the award. Hopefully it will inspire more women to stand up against their oppressors. Women of the world unite.

Thats the least they can do after using this poor girl for a blatant psyop as they did.
Its completely normal for victims of violent crime in Afghanistan to be airlifted to the UK.
