"Burka Avenger is a new Pakistani kids' show about a mild-mannered teacher who moonlights as a burka-clad superhero."
What a great idea for a book series!
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
This short introduction to the television show is comical and seems interesting to many different age groups. It highlights a teacher in a burka helping the children and trying to stop bad people. It shows that gender has nothing to do with the ability to defend and help someone. If this woman can do it in a burka, anyone could. I think it will show a positive message in Pakistan where gender equality isn't fully understood. While many people will treat it as just another crime-fighting television show, hopefully some children will take some positive messages away.
My geography class watched this. It is an interesting example of how different cultures can mesh together, such as the Burka Avenger and Wonder Woman. It is really interesting that the Burka Avenger is a school teacher by day, which shows how highly educators are thought of in the society.
This is great! It is a cute animated trailer to the cartoon series the Burka Avenger! She wears a burka to hide her identity which it certainly does, and then she kicks the bad guy’s butts! A great gender reversal in this area, showing women can be a hero and stand up to men. And she cleverly uses the restrictive clothing to keep her identity concealed.
