Google is today celebrating educator and feminist icon Fatima Sheikh, who is widely considered to be India's first Muslim woman teacher, with a doodle. 

Fatima Sheikh was born on this day in 1831 in Pune. She lived with her brother Usman, and the siblings opened their home to the Phules after the couple was evicted for attempting to educate people in lower castes.
