I’m
Aklima Bibi

Businesswoman and Philanthropist

Professionally – I am a highly experienced business and legal professional, with a clear, logical mind, a proactive approach to problem-solving, and a drive to see things through to completion. Someone who has a demonstrable passion for promoting and supporting human rights and global justice. I am also a winner of the Influential Businesswomen award 2021 (Most Influential Legal Consulting Director UK) to be officially announced soon.

Personally – against all odds, I survived many forms of abuse. From being engaged at 9, forced to marry while still a teenager, drugged and raped. As well as survived years of domestic abuse, mental health issues, and even survived attempted contract killing! I fought and proved myself to be a warrior against a culture where a girl or a woman would be killed for being too independent or being too ambitious. A culture where women or girls have no voice. After having fought off an honour-based mob attack while in Bangladesh, I was named ‘British Bandit Queen’.

My Book

“In the hopes of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that BLOSSOM at their feet.” (Albert Schweitzer, Theologian).                                                                                                  

“In these circumstances, when you’ve got a British girl, often you’re seen as a commodity.” “Because she’s got a passport, he can get a visa”, and work in the UK.“We’re seeing a generational strategy to emigrate to the UK.” (Alan Morrison, the British Consul in Bangladesh, BBC – My Forced Unwanted Wedding, 2011).

My story is no ordinary story; it tells of a whole cycle of violence, from forced marriage to domestic abuse, and police corruption to attempted contract killing. My sin – being a British Bangladeshi woman! I was used and abused in the name of money, property, and – most importantly – a UK visa, a British passport. I was a modern- day slave in Britain in the name of honour and izzat, an item who was traded for my extended family’s better life and then used as a commodity for my husband’s entire family to live off. I was an educated, intelligent British woman, an international businesswoman, an inspector, an auditor, and a lawyer, but I was still a caged bird, a zombie, a robot doing what I was told to do. But why?
