TryHard got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in The Suffering and Martyrdom of Fatima Zahra(as) - Key points to remember
Another reason on why she answered the door is because it was her duty. She was defending her Imam (عليه السلام). Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and Fatima (عليه السلام) went to the homes of certain ansar to call on them for support because they made bayah to Imam Ali (عليه السلام). Fatima (عليه السلام) was pretty much the only support he had.
We have to remember they were able to make it all the way to Fatima's (عليه السلام) door and people knew Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was the Khalifah yet these people made it all the way to Imam Ali's(عليه السلام) door no one stood up to them no one stopped them. At that point no one else was defending Imamat so symbolically in a sense she (عليه السلام) had too.
There is more to this but that is a small note from what I have learned.
