While Bangladesh is known as a site for constant NGO development interventions in poverty alleviation, global economic drivers have also played a significant role in bringing women further into the greater economic sphere. Women workers within the country (especially in the garments sector), but even more interestingly women migrant workers, have made a huge impact upon the overall economic development of the country.

This workshop explored the impact of these movements of female workers in women’s lives, in family structures and its impact on the cultural and social lives. The workshop brought together researchers, NGO workers, and women’s organizations to discuss and critically engage with these issues at length.
