Shelby Porter's curator insight, November 4, 2013 7:13 AM

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.

Shizah Amin's insight:

This article is very impressive and informative. We are living in a busy society, everyone love to eat take away food, feeding babies canned food and ready to eat shelves products without noticing the harm of the chemical substance and side effects for the bodies. Media has to play an independent role to control these toxic items from our lives. We should buy the organic and hormone free products for our daily life style, eat fresh food and use green products for cleaning. Although we should follow the Government websides and the guide lines to buy and use green environmental friendly products.

The Indian Governament took a great step for mining closuer, Goven people will get the benefit for that action with a clean and healthy environment, if the government focuses on cleaning the public places that would be the greater impact on people health and hygien.
