    Fatima Sheikh took an active role in Phules’ Satyashodhak Samaj (Truthseekers’ Society) movement, by going “door-to-door to invite the downtrodden in her community to learn at the Indigenous Library and escape the rigidity of the Indian caste system.” Google describes Sheikh as someone who persisted, despite facing great resistance and humiliation from members of dominant caste.

    Calling Sheikh’s story “historically overlooked,” Google stated that the Indian government made efforts to highlight her achievement in 2014, by “featuring her profile in Urdu textbooks alongside other trailblazing Indian educators.”
