Trump instates global aid ban for NGO's providing abortions

Donald Trump has just signed an executive order banning funding to all overseas organizations which provide abortions. This policy not only defunds organizations which directly provide abortions but any organization which is viewed to “promote” it as well. This legislation will hurt women everywhere, particularly those in developing countries, where organizations rely on foreign funding to be able to provide health care services. This impacts not only issues regarding abortion but a broader spectrum of things relating ... Read More

Interview: Voices of young women

Young women
Women are the backbone of the garment industry and constitute the vast majority of garment workers. Yet women’s voices, especially those of young women, are often not heard. I wanted to change this and give them an opportunity to speak on this topic. I asked 4 women of different ages and backgrounds the following question: “Did you know that the vast majority of garment workers are women, many of which face physical and sexual abuse. What do you think about that?" Below ... Read More

Having hope despite Donald Trump

The election of Donald Trump has sent shock waves around the world. People are reacting with fear, protests and sheer anger that such a man could be elected to be the “leader of the free world”. Tears are being shed seemingly wherever you look. Many of us hoped that with the election of a first female president we could look forward to better treatment of women, both at home and abroad. I personally was so ... Read More

Africa. Women in the developing world. The garment industry. In today’s political climate, when we hear these things, we instantly react almost viscerally, expecting to hear something somber. We think of injustice, violence, sweatshops and, most often, poverty. Now when these things are combined into one topic, “African women in the garment industry”, we expect even more negativity. While it’s true that there are indeed many injustices and troubles that this group faces, there is ... Read More

I believe this is because we are disconnected from the process. We don’t really know what happens when we put something in the recycle bin and it’s not really that exciting. Well, I want to tell you a way ... Read More

Video: YOU can make a difference!

We all owe a great debt to people like the garment workers (mostly women) of Bangalore, who stand, amid oppression and abuse, and fight for their rights. Protests like these go on everyday all over the world, from India to Cambodia, but are often unnoticed by the larger global community. It is our hope that by raising awareness to these issues we can help these ... Read More

Women in Africa and the power of Co-operatives

Africa. Women in the developing world. The garment industry. In today’s political climate, when we hear these things, we instantly react almost viscerally, expecting to hear something somber. We think of injustice, violence, sweatshops and, most often, poverty. Now when these things are combined into one topic, “African women in the garment industry”, we expect even more negativity. While it’s true that there are indeed many injustices and troubles that this group faces, there is also another story. A story ... Read More
