Hi everyone! so many women in history have changed the course of human history. And you know, the women came from various parts of the world. unfortunately, many people are so disdainful of badass women from developing countries, and lack respect for them. one of them was Razia Sultan. Some of you may have never heard of her name before. Actually, I know her from @giglee_magazine
Razia Sultan ruled the Sultanate of Delhi after the passing of her father, who named her his heir. To the outrage of many, she behaved exactly the way a Sultan would, even wearing her father’s royal clothes when sitting on the throne and would only answer to ‘Sultan’ and not ‘Sultanah.’ She lead armies into battle and was a firm believer in education, opening libraries and schools. However, many at the time were against having a woman in power and she was overthrown.
