SÃO PAULO – Findings from a new report have placed a spotlight on the extent of harassment, sexual abuse and gender-based discrimination within Brazil’s garment manufacturing industry.

Funded by the Laudes Foundation (formerly C&A Foundation), with support from labour rights group the Solidarity Center, the report: Promoting Human Rights and Strengthening Trade Union Action and Equality in the Brazilian Clothing Sector offers insight from workers within the country’s apparel and footwear sectors.

“For many women, work is synonymous with suffering,” the report notes.

Focusing solely on unionised workplaces, it’s hoped the extent of these findings can be the driving force for expansive worker protection measures across Brazil, having already helped shape new contract clauses that protect unions.
