Jyoti Amge, a resident of Nagpur, India, is the world's smallest living woman according to the Limca Book of Records and Guinness Book of Records.

A documentary featuring Amge was broadcast in the United Kingdom on Channel 4 on June 11, 2009 at 21:00 called BodyShock: Two Foot High Teen.

She was a guest participant at Bigg Boss 6 - a winner-take-all television show in India where participants are required to live together in a large house engaging in a variety of 'tasks' as part of the game-show.

As of December 16, 2011, on her 18th birthday, she has been officially declared the world's smallest woman by Guinness Book of Records with a height of 62.8 cm. Her restricted height is due to a growth anomaly called achondroplasia.
