Why care about the fashion industry?
Fashion is more than just glitz, glamour, and catwalks. Along its value chain, it employs more than 60 million people and clothes billions of people worldwide. Women comprise 60 to 90 per cent of total apparel workers, of whom an estimated 80 per cent are women of colour.
Due to its sheer size, the sector already faces numerous social challenges, including low wages, violence, harassment, and unsafe work conditions. Furthermore, the pandemic has dramatically affected the lives of women and young people working in the industry, negating any gains made in reducing forced labour and child labour and raising poverty levels.
By focusing on changing fashion, we can harness a $5 trillion industry to create an inclusive and equitable space that supports human wellbeing and the flourishing of society as a whole.
