Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 2 July 16,Shedding light on the dark statistics of abuse
This was a good read, because the statistics reveal how women working in garment factories have a high probability of being sexually abused (‘One in seven women in Bengaluru garment factories face sexual violence, report says’, Gulf News, June 27). It’s sad, but shedding light on the issue is important. Supervisors and managers working above women staff should behave properly and keep up the reputation of their factory. They should think of their sister or daughter being treated like this, and how would they feel about that. Women should feel happy to work without any fear and they should be respected. Men should change their mindset and give equal rights to women, not only in garment factories, but also in other areas.
