Taking a badass approach to woman empowerment in Bangladesh

Published on 17 September, 2021

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2018, Bangladesh has made great strides when it comes to women’s empowerment. The country currently ranks 48th, proudly ahead of neighbouring South Asian countries. However, the numbers do not reflect much about the condition of women in the country, as they face obstacles both inside and outside their own homes. Women stepping out of the house, to work for themselves, and whatnot, is still frowned upon by the average Joe in the country’s conservative society. Despite such challenges, the group of women vowed to travel all 64 districts of Bangladesh on motorbike, in order to educate the female youth about their potential.
