The Burka Avenger is inspiring for several reasons. For one, her weapons are not guns or swords, but pens and books reinforcing the education is the most effective weapon in the fight against social injustice. It takes the burka traditionally a symbol of oppression and flips it on its head. The burka is what empowers her and its transforms her into her alter-identity of a crime fighting super hero. Her burka is sleek, and ninjaesque while the flare of her burka is like a cape which lets her fly.
