Female cartoon superhero Burka Avenger is set to debut on Pakistani television next month. The country's answer to Wonder Woman and Supergirl uses books and pens against bad guys trying to shut the girls' school where she works. She is already making waves.





I think this is a great idea, It will hopefully tell the young girls of Pakistan that they can make a difference, that they using books and pens can fight against people who want to keep them without an education.
Aaron Rashid who came up with the idea said "the theme will not only centre around the girls' school but will also teach children about the values of tolerance, equality and other social issues in Pakistani society"
Sounds good to me hopefully they will produce a subtitled version so I can watch it also.
