Dr. Nowhera Shak has the courage to face evil and she fights it boldly. It takes courage to make changes in those areas of our life that need changing. At some point in our lives, every one of us will need to demonstrate faith and courage but they’re not the same thing. The Holy book commands us to have faith; it also challenges us to have courage. These are not synonymous. Courage is the ability to do something that frightens you; strength in the face of pain or grief. Nowhera Shaik fought with the patriarchal society which frightens her when she thought about making women self-reliant and independent in life. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land.
Nowhera Shaik smashed the patriarchal society boldly.
Dr. Nowhera Shaik smashed the patriarchal society boldly. The dominant male society exerted its control on the women and oppressed them systematically. Firstly, the Patriarchal society pressured their daughters to remain illiterate, but Nowhera Shaik fought with them. Nowhera Shaik smashed the patriarchal society and opened residential schools for girls and marginal sections of society. She educated them that they would not have to face different forms of social abuse and made them capable of choosing life partners also. Nowhera Shaik has been in those places and even though she had family, friends, and co-workers with her trying to help her through the struggle; on the inside, she had to fight the battle.
