Cambodia, women and work in the garment industry

Women in Cambodia and elsewhere in Asia are a dynamic but often underrated economic force.

Despite these advances many challenges still remain. This study was designed to provide detailed data on critical issues concerning women workers. Issues identified include: Health and nutrition, breastfeeding, childcare, personal safety, and various forms of workplace harassment. Each of these issues has been covered based on a research methodology developed by CARE International,
