Made in Bangladesh: Live Q&A
Inspired by some of the real-life stories that Bangladeshi filmmaker Rubaiyat Hossain came across as a women’s rights activist, Made in Bangladesh tells the story of a young Bangladeshi garment worker who discovers the power of activism on a journey towards collective liberation and empowerment.
The backbone of Bangladesh’s economy is carried by young women: 80% of workers in the garment industry, which is the country’s most profitable industry, are women. The country’s head of state is a woman, the opposition leader is a woman, the speaker of Parliament is a woman… and yet workers like Shimu, the film’s protagonist, still have to fight to realise their basic rights, in the home and in the factory.
Join director Rubaiyat Hossain and representatives from Christian Aid and Labour Behind the Label live at 20:30 on Friday, 25 September for a conversation exploring the complex dynamics of women’s empowerment within the context of fast fashion – and the power of unions.
All our Q&As are free to attend, though pre-registration is required.
This Q&A will have live captions for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about access for this event.
