Tthe garment industry is an important employer in Asia but women workers are disproportionately represented in the most vulnerable, marginalised, low paid and impoverished forms of work in the industry. CARE has been working with the garment industry in countries across Asia for over 15 years and we have already had a positive impact on the lives of tens of thousands of workers. In Cambodia, CARE’s tools for preventing sexual harassment are helping make workplaces safer for women. In Bangladesh, CARE has helped develop the leadership, communication and negotiation skills of nearly 60,000 women workers in the last decade.
