Fatima was born in Kabul, Afghanistan while her father Murtaza Bhutto was in exile during the military regime of General Zia ul Haq. Murtaza Bhutto, was son of former Pakistan's President and Prime Minister, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, and her mother is Fauzia Fasihudin Bhutto, daughter of Afghanistan's former Foreign Affair official. Her father was killed by the police in 1996 in Karachi during the premiership of his sister, Benazir Bhutto. Her parents divorced when she was young and Ghinwa Bhutto became her stepmother in 1989.Years later, her mother
unsuccessfully attempted to gain parental custody of Fatima.
She received her secondary education at the Karachi American School then she completed her BA degree in Middle Eastern studies from Barnard College of Columbia University.She received a Master's degree in South Asian Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London
Fatima is the author of two books, a volume of poetry published when she was 15 years old in her father's memory a year after his death called " Whispers of the Desert " and a collection of first hand survivor's accounts from the October 8, 2005 earthquake in Pakistan entitled " 8:50 am " Both were published by Oxford
University Press. The proceeds from '8:50 am' will be given back to child survivors of the quake. Fatima Bhutto visited the affected areas to record and compile inspiring accounts of those affected—victims and volunteers—as a tribute to their hope, courage and resilience in the face of calamity.Fatima currently writes a weekly column for Pakistan's largest Urdu daily newspaper, Daily Jang, and its English sister paper: The News International. Fatima also wrote a weekly diary from Lebanon this past summer during the Israeli invasion.
Following the assassination of her aunt, Benazir Bhutto, her entrance into politics has been speculated.

She has stated that for now she prefers to remain active through her writing, rather than through elected office.However, she actively supports her mother's chairmanship to the unpopular wing of the Pakistan People's Party (Shaheed Bhutto Group), which failed to win a single seat in the 2008 elections.
" I don't believe in birth-right politics. I don't think, nor have I ever thought, that my name qualifies me for anything.”
