Razia Shabnam (in orange) says farewell to her husband as she leaves in a taxi with her son Saihaan, to referee an all-India invitational boxing competition in the neighbouring town of Burnpur, Calcutta, West Bengal, India. Razia Shabnam, 28, was one of the first women boxers in Kolkata. She was also the first woman in her community to go to college. She is now a coach and one of only three international female boxing referees in India. Photo by Suzanne Lee for Panos London
