Bangladesh is a country with evenly distributed male and female population. From the very beginning of its journey as an independent country it has been cherishing of harmonized growth of both male and female population. But it is far behind in materializing the envisaged goals for male population even, let alone for female population although history provides that our women played no less a role than the males in the junctures of the nation including achievement of independence. Till date their immense and outstanding contributions in the areas of family care, birth control, infant care and nutrition and even in generating income have been proved indispensable.


There is always at least an objective behind any word, which drives a person towards to work. As per natural rule we also had some objectives for completing this report. Our objective is: 1To find who are the working women.

3.Overview the Issue:

Women have been active in a sporadic fashion in Bangladesh’s history. They have acted as enlightened individuals, speaking out against excess- vie aspects of women’s subordination. One example is Begum Rokeya Sakhawat Hussain whose essays and short stories caricatured the practice of purdah in the early twentieth century.
