Letter to Walmart re gender based violence

Author: Asia Floor Wage Alliance & Global Labor Justice , Published on: 23 May 2018

2. Meet with the Asia Floor Wage Women's Leadership Committee in the next three months to discuss the supply chain findings and next steps.

3. Proactively work with the Asia Floor wage Alliance to pilot women's committees in factories in factories that eliminate gender based violence and discrimination from the supplier factories.
