When Bota Box was just three months old, she had just been born.
Now, five years later, the girl from northern Bangladesh, nicknamed “Box Lunch,” has become a household name, a boxer who, in a way, is a poster child for Bangladesh’s growing female population.
The country is experiencing an economic boom, and boxers are starting to dominate the sport in a country where men are still largely the breadwinners.
The number of women in the sport is rising, and Box Lunch’s role in this is significant.
Box Lunch is not just a boxer, but a symbol of Bangladesh’s burgeoning women’s movement.
She is also a poster woman for a society that has long struggled to achieve parity in its representation of women.
And while she was born to a family of farmers and is a single mother herself, Box Lunch became a pro at 16.
As she got older, Box became interested in boxing.
She started training, winning medals and earning respect from her peers.
Box has made it to the finals of several international competitions, and she is considered to be one of the best boxers in the world.
But for many, her life has been a struggle.
In 2013, a judge found her guilty of “pornography of an indecent nature” and sentenced her to two years in prison.
Box was also banned from public life for seven years.
The judge also ordered her to pay a hefty fine of Dh150,000 ($2,300).
In 2015, she appealed, arguing that her conviction should be overturned and she should be allowed to fight again.
In 2017, she lost her appeal and was sentenced to two and a half years in jail.
Since then, she has been in and out of jail.
Box’s plight is one of many examples of how the gender disparity in the country continues to be a factor in the economy.
But what makes Box’s story so compelling is how it has affected Box’s mother, a factory worker.
In fact, the judge’s ruling was a result of Box’s “insulting” her, according to a recent report in The Times of India.
The report described Box’s actions as “misogynistic, insulting, indecent, indecent and indecent against women.”
When the judge was considering her sentence, Box’s family asked for a reduction, but the judge ruled against them, the report said.
This prompted Box to appeal.
In July 2017, Box won a decision that overturned the judge and allowed her to fight in the first televised boxing match in Bangladesh.
The outcome of that fight was seen as a turning point for the boxer.
Box became a star in Bangladesh, even getting national coverage.
In a statement after the match, Box said, “I am grateful to all those who supported me, even those who criticized my behavior, and I wish them a happy and prosperous future.”
This past March, Box was crowned the International Boxer of the Year.
Her win also earned her a new nickname, “Box lunch,” after a photo of her with a box.
She has since been named as one of India’s top 100 boxers.
Box is just one of hundreds of young girls in Bangladesh who are fighting for a greater share of the spotlight in the sporting world.
In 2015 alone, more than 1,500 women, boys and girls participated in national competitions, according a study by the National Human Rights Commission of Bangladesh.
That number is expected to climb as more young girls compete in international competitions.
A growing number of the country’s young girls are becoming stars in the box, too.
A recent survey found that 40 percent of young Bangladeshi women said they wanted to be athletes.
These young girls, some as young as 12, are making headlines for the first time because of their successes in sport.
The most popular sport in Bangladesh is boxing, but it is also the only one that many girls compete under the banner of the National Sports Development Agency, or NSDDA, or the National Youth Development Agency.
The NSDDAs mandate is to develop sports and develop girls in the rural areas.
NSDDs mandate also includes sports like football, volleyball, karate, basketball and soccer, which are traditionally considered by the girls in rural Bangladesh as a way to earn money.
As such, girls in these sports often have to choose between family obligations or school and work.
In many ways, the choice is between going to school and earning money.
Box may have been forced to choose his or her future after being convicted of indecent exposure, but he is determined to get back on track.
He says he has decided to keep fighting, despite the punishment.
“I want to stay in the ring,” he said.
“And the only thing that will stop me is the punishment.”
