Cost of Fashion

Just stumbled upon a few reports on the condition of women working in textile mills in South India. The reports called "Maid in India" and "Captured by Cotton" depict vividly the plight of women enrolled under the Sumangali Schemes of various Textile Mills.

The reports go to show the low cost fashion available in high streets which can be due to the conditions under which workers work in textile and garment factories.

There is another report depicting the prevalence of child labour in the sequin units in Tuglakabad and Sangam Vihar district of Delhi and how the laws are flouted by bribing off the officials.

Some eye-opening articles, I must say.

Here are the links:

1. Maid in India

3. Slavery on the High Streets
