Yousafzai’s doctors report that the 14-year-old is doing well. She’s able to stand up and write notes but is “not out of the woods,” Dr. David Rosser of the U.K.’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital told reporters.

She still has a few weeks of recovery treatment ahead, including a skull reconstruction surgery.

Yousafzai is a girl’s education activist whose survival and recovery has made international headlines and inspired dozens of vigils and anti-Taliban protests.
