CARE is making a significant contribution to collective efforts to create sustainable, industry-wide change which promotes the rights of women working in the garment industry. We are impacting more and more women each year; the cumulative number of women impacted by mid-2019 represents a 59% increase on the previous year. 2019 represented a tipping point for global action to promote dignified work for women — for example through CARE’s advocacy work which, alongside our partners and allies, helped to influence how governments, trade unions and employer representatives voted on the adoption of a new ILO Convention on Violence and Harassment.
Made by Women: Impact Report 2019
The Made by Women strategy seeks to ensure women in the garment industry have access to decent jobs, are free from violence and harassment and can give voice to their rights at work. CARE has the ambitious goal of economically empowering 8 million women garment workers in Asia by 2021. Learn more about our impact in the 2019 Made by Women Impact Report.
