Giving Women's 8th Annual Conference
«The Fashion Industry: Women's Friend or Foe'»

Over the last 8 years, Giving Women has organised a yearly conference, which examines a theme that effects vulnerable girls and women globally.

The Giving Women Annual conference has become an important platform for convening UN organisations, Civil Society, NGOs, business, academia, and private individuals to INFORM, REFLECT AND ACT on what we need to do together to improve the lives fo grils and women globally.

This year we are focussing on the fashion industry in which 95% of the employees are women, providing on the one hand livelihoods for the poorest but often under unacceptable conditions.
Giving Women is looking at this vast subject from the view point of production- supply chain and labour rights and then from the view point of the consumer. Women are always at the centre of our discourse.

Fashion is a source of pleasure and self-expression. it is a way we express who we are and value to the world. Ironically, while the clothes we wear may make us feel proud, beautiful and strong, what they are doing to our environment and to the women who make our clothes is very ugly. Few people are aware that the fashion industry is the second largest polluter after oil. And while we may be sensitised to the poor labour practices that are affecting millions of people (95% women who create our clothes, we do not have the knowledge or opportunity to allow us make better choices.

Today, both people and the environment suffer as a result of the way fashion is made, sourced and consumed. Fashion Revolution
