DHAKA – New data collected by the team behind BRAC University’s Mapped in Bangladesh (MiB) platform shows that the proportion of women in the country’s ready-made garment (RMG) sector is diminishing, reportedly due to a rise in automation, wage hikes and the marital status of factory staff.  

“Our research indicates that women have accounted for 65 per cent of the garment sector's workforce in the last few years, but it has dropped to 58.3 per cent now,” Syed Hasibuddin Hussain, project manager of MiB, told reporters at a hotel in the country’s capital.
