  • Meet The “Burka Avenger”
    "A pop star in Pakistan has begun a new animated series called the Burka Avenger.
    Here’s how CNN describes it:
    Most, if not all, super heroes wear cloaks and masks to hide their identity. But how about a burqa?
    A new cartoon series in Pakistan is turning stereotypes on their head. It’s centered around a woman who doesn’t wear a burqa in the daytime but puts one on to transform into the “Burka Avenger” – and what’s more, she’s fighting for female education.
    .."
