    Why Chinese Investment Needs Gender Sensitivity: The Case of Sexual Harassment in Cambodia’s Garment Industry

    17 Sep 2020 Pichamon Yeophantong

    The US$2.4 trillion garment industry employs around 75 million people globally, with the vast majority of the workforce being women in Asia. However, a range of labor and human rights violations continue to bedevil in the global garment industry’s obscure supply chain. In particular, the insidious problem of sexual harassment and other forms of gender-based violence at work poses as a daily risk to garment factory workers. In Cambodia’s garment industry, which features a large concentration of investment from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, the responsibility to prevent gender-based violence and empower women workers for greater gender equality in this important sector falls not only on the Cambodian government and global brands, but equally—if not more—on the factory owners and investors. This guest article highlights the need for Chinese investment to be gender sensitive and to support gender equality through more responsible business conduct in this important sector.
