We collaborated with CARE International in their campaign to end gender based violence (GBV) in the garment industry, particularly in Cambodia and Bangladesh where most factory workers are women and sexual harassment and abuse is a problem.

For more detailed information about the issue and what CARE International is doing to tackle it, see their report about the Asian garment industry: Made by Women: Dignified Work in Asia Impact Report 2019.

Sumi’s story is based on the real-life stories of female garment workers that CARE International works with across Bangladesh.
