@MsWandas on The Apparel Truth and Abuse of Women
Ethical fashion blogger, Ms Wanda, posted a piece about the apparel truth the other day. She makes some great points about the industry. Particularly pertinent is her emphasis on the abuse of women in this industry. Not only are women workers subject to the same hardships as men and children in the industry, but also suffer additional mistreatments such as unfair dismissal due to becoming pregnant, being forced to work in advanced stages of pregnancy and, perhaps worst of all, being subject to sexual exploitation as well. The threat of rape is actually used as a means to intimidate those who speak out against the atrocities.
Please check out Ms Wonda’s excellent blog. There are a wealth of informative posts there.
