Visit facebook.com/HumanRightsWatch Friday 5 June 20:30 for a live Q&A with filmmaker Rubaiyat Hossain, Nisha Varia, Advocacy Director, Women’s Rights Division, HRW, moderated by Annie Kelly, journalist & editor, Guardian Modern-day Slavery in Focus Shimu works gruelling hours for paltry pay in a clothing factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh. After a fire in the factory leaves a co-worker dead, Shimu is moved to start a union. Her attempts are met with resistance at every step, not just from her patriarchal employers but also her colleagues, who fear losing their jobs. In the face of threats from management and violent disapproval of her husband, Shimu discovers a wealth of courage and tenacity she didn’t know she had. Channeling real-life stories that Bangladeshi filmmaker Rubaiyat Hossain encountered as a women's rights activist, this empowering, layered drama shines a light on an oppressive industry and demands our attention. “One hundred years ago in Bangladesh, women had to live in seclusion. Today, they are working, they are making a living for themselves and their families, and they are fighting within the factory and at home for their rights.” - Rubaiyat Hossain, director, Made in Bangladesh
