A neighbour brings some food over to Razia Shabnam (in blue) as she prepares lunch for her son at home in Ekbalpore, 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
