Combating sexual harassment in the garment industry

Herausgeber_in: Human Rights Watch

Schlagwörter: Arbeitsbedingungen, CSR, Frauenrechte, Gesetzgebung, Menschenrechtsverletzungen, Unternehmensverantwortung


Women workers in garment factories around the world endure sexual harassment on a daily basis. The international apparel brands that source from the factories they work in claim zero tolerance for such workplace abuses, but their efforts to stamp it out have been ineffective. Governments have also fallen short—either not passing laws prohibiting sexual harassment at all or failing to implement the laws and policies they have. Now though, the International Labor Conference is considering a binding convention on violence and harassment at work, including sexual harassment. This presents a moment of unprecedented opportunity to improve global efforts to address some of the most pervasive abuses facing women workers.

This brochure describes the experiences of women garment workers struggling against abuses at work across several countries. It also explains why company-led efforts to police factory conditions have fallen short— and are particularly ill-suited to detecting and ensuring redress for sexual harassment at work. The brochure argues that the effort to create an ILO Convention is the best pragmatic path forward, and one that governments, civil society and industry leaders alike should get behind it.
