Stitching A Better Future: Is Vietnam's Boom In Garment Manufacturing Good for Women?


This research from ActionAid Vietnam and ActionAid UK in cooperation with Aid for social protection program foundation in Vietnam (AFV) aims to review whether the expansion of the garment and textile sector has created decent jobs for women, and whether it is producing the tax revenues needed to support public services that working women need. It is based on a field survey undertaken between 21 November and 3 December 2016 in Hanoi, Haiphong and Uong Bi involving interviews with government, civil society representatives and garment workers, as well as analysis of secondary data.
