    As per a World Bank report released recently, Bangladesh is among the few countries in South Asia that has increased female employment in the last decade, with women workforce participation rate increasing by 36 per cent, from 26 per cent between 2003 and 2016. In the garment manufacturing sector alone, 80 per cent is occupied by women.

    Is workers’ welfare only suppliers’ responsibility…, as a recent report from Human Rights Watch (HRW) underlines how buyers’ pressure tactics are promoting workers’ abuses in factories. Even though Bangladesh has increased workers’ wages by 263 per cent over the last 10 years, the garment prices have fallen by almost 6.63 per cent (in USA) and 7.33 per cent (in Europe). HRW further maintained that retailers too are prompting their suppliers to take cost-cutting measures that result in perilous and abusive work environments.
