American Eagle Outfitter's Response

[...]

AEO takes the reports of inappropriate behavior toward workers, particularly gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH), as well as gender discrimination, very seriously. Unfortunately, we know that gender-based violence is prevalent across supply chains in India, as well as in other industries and countries. We are committed to do our part in ending gender-based violence, but we are also mindful that this is a work in progress, and these are complex issues with no simple solutions. We remain committed to continue to implement programs such as HERrespect, a program of BSR’s HERproject, which is working directly with factories and workers, in India and elsewhere, to promote gender equality and prevent violence in the world of work.
