Let Rohingya women decide their future: Amnesty

Living as a refugee in Bangladesh after fleeing persecution in Myanmar, the story of Rohingya women is all about hardship and struggle.

As the world celebrates Women’s Day, the concept of women empowerment is little known to the Rohingya community of Cox’s Bazar.

Amnesty International has pulled out a story of one small family trying to deviate from the norms and trying to stand up on its feet on women power.

It is the story of a mother and her daughter who are tailoring in refugee camps, hoping to become independent and earn their place in the world.

More than half of Rohingya refugees in Cox's Bazar are women and girls. The young women and girls are often forced into marriage.

This is the story of Anwara Begum and her daughter Rozia Bibi.
