Widespread sexual harassment of garment workers documented

Many millions of women throughout India are being progressively integrated into the expanding industrial sectors. A new report focusing on the garment sector shows that many of these women are being subjected to widespread sexual harassment and violence. With a recent push by the Indian government to expand the garment sector, these issues are only going to increase. As the report shows, only through labour activists and independent trade unions organising for better rights, will workers be able to put a stop to this violence.
