Razia Shabnam hands the referee her score sheet as she judges a bout at 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
