This description of Fatima Khanam's work was prepared when Fatima Khanam was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1998.
Dismayed by the lack of opportunities for women's leadership, Fatima Khanam seeks to ensure women's equal participation in all spheres of life by improving young female students's understanding of the status and challenges of women in Bangladesh society, and providing concrete employment and leadership programs during their studies.
