Women's safety at work

The Women’s Safety at Work portal is an online platform. FWF uses data from projects in countries like Bangladesh and India to identify key risks that affect women garment workers and that can lead to workplace violence. The platform also covers measures that can help improve women’s working conditions, like the training of top management or the creation of anti-harassment committees.

Living Wage Portal

Why do living wages still seem an impossible dream for most garment workers? FWF works to uncover and overcome the many obstacles that prevent garment workers from earning a living wage and to find lasting real-world solutions. The Living Wage Portal offers real-life examples of brands working with factories towards living wages. The platform also offers insights from experts, access to tools, and voices from workers and local stakeholders.
