The Branded Girls

A film by Bijoyeta Das and Khaled Hasan (Bangladesh/2010/9:35).

In Bangladesh, girls and women earn less than a minimum wage in sweatshops that produce clothing for the world's top brands. The garment workers were lured by dreams of financial independence. In reality, the women become slave labor. They are forced to work for more than ten hours a day, seven days a week. Many women complain of harassment at the factories, both rude behavior and sexual assaults. Women are often attacked when they are returning home after night shifts. There is no insurance and no medical compensation. The garment factories continue to lure hundreds of thousands of young girls and children each year.
