Burka Avenger

Pakistani TV has a new cartoon superheroine Burka Avenger (2013). By day she is a mild-mannered teacher in a girls' school, but she has secret martial arts skills. When her school is threatened by local reactionary villains, she dons her flowing burka to hide her identity and to attack them. Pakistani feminists don't like her wearing a burka, because they see it as a symbol of male oppression of women, but a Wonder Woman flashing her bare thighs would go down like a ton of bricks in such a backward country. The important thing is that Taliban-style thugs are depicted as the dickheads they are (CLICK).
