Aisha, the wife of the founder of Islam, lived with unique connections that allowed her to have a large amount of power in the early Islamic Empire. This is the story of a woman who spent her life as a politician, adviser, educator, and even at one point, a warrior. She's one of the most influential people in the history of Islam. A shoe-in for the halls of the bada** women of history.

Narrated by the amazing Ines Dawson from Draw Curiosity. Go watch her talk about science, and tell her you heard her on Step Back: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOs_jEnQF2ePJzjJTgRtunA
