Made by Women: Gender, the Global Garment Industry and the Movement for Women Workers' Rights

September 29, 2005

A 2005 publication from the Clean Clothes Campaign profiling women activists and the gender issues inherent in global struggles for garment workers rights. From the introduction: “The women action researchers, consumer activists, union organisers, and others highlighted here have taken risks and championed different approaches that have con¬tributed to the movement that in all its shapes and forms has brought us to where we are now in the struggle for justice for garment workers. These women demystify what it takes to be gender aware. They demonstrate that gender awareness is not a confusing proposition at all. Put simply, keeping women workers’ needs central to what guides their work is what keeps them on the path of supporting worker empowerment.”
