Made by Women: Dignified Work in Asia Impact Report 2017

CARE is pursuing an ambitious new strategy on Dignified Work in Asia, called Made By Women. This report pulls together facts and figures on women’s role in the garment industry in Asia; outlines the injustices that women currently face, and the challenges to achieving Dignified Work; and sets out CARE’s strategy, the outcomes we want to see, and our achievements so far.

Through the Made by Women strategy CARE aims to economically empower 8 million women garment workers through Dignified Work by 2021. Made by Women is part of CARE’s women’s economic empowerment strategy to ensure greater access to and control over economic resources for 30 million women by 2020 and is one of our major contributions to the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 5 and 8.
