More than 60,000 people have backed a petition to nominate Malala Yousufzai for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Pakistani schoolgirl is being treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham after being shot in the head by the Taliban last month.
Calls for the award come ahead of a global day of action marking a month since the 15-year-old was shot.
"Malala doesn't just represent one young woman, she speaks out for all those who are denied an education purely on the basis of their gender.
"There are girls like Malala in the UK and across the world. I was one of them.
"I started this petition because a Nobel Peace Prize for Malala will send a clear message that the world is watching and will support those who stand up for the right of girls to get an education."
Malala Yousufzai, the 15 year old shot in the head by the Taliban, has been reunited with her friend who was injured in the same attack.
It is the first day of term in Swat Valley Pakistan and the girls in High School have much to be thankful for.
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
