So as everybody that has payed attention in APHUG knows that women aren’t represented well in the Muslim world. A fairly recent cartoon dubbed the “Burka Avenger” is a Pakistani cartoon show that has “flipped the status quo on its head with its female superhero protagonist, who fights crime in her magical burka.”(Natasha Noman) The Burka Avenger is a teacher who fights crime in her spare time with yes, her magical burka. The show launched in August of 2013 and has had extremely high reviews and will hopefully make a change for all of the women in Muslim communities and Muslim’s across the world.
