Power to Choose - Bangladeshi Women & Labour Market Decisions in London & Dhaka


Product Information

An examination of the lives of Bangladeshi garment workers in order to shed light on the question of what constitues "fair'" trade. While Bangladesh is generally considered a poor, conservative Muslim country, with a long tradition of female seclusion, women here have entered factories to take their place as a prominent, first generation, industrial labour force. On the other hand, in Britain's modern and secular society with its long tradition of female industrial employment, Bangladeshi women are largely concentrated in home-based piece work for the garment industry. This book draws on testimonies from both groups concerning their experiences at work and the impact these have had on their lives generally to explain such paradoxes.
