Join War on Want's campaign to stop the fashion industry using sweatshops
War on Want’s latest report, "Stitched Up", exposes the reality faced by thousands of women toiling in sweatshops in Bangladesh to produce garments for sale in the UK. Women workers face daily violations of their rights: excessively long working days, unsafe working conditions, unrealistically high production targets, paltry wages, sexual harassment, and the denial of maternity leave. Please help to stop this exploitation by increasing pressure on the British government to regulate UK companies so that the rights of overseas workers are protected.
