I am a feminist. I believe all women are entitled to equality in all forms - i.e. culturally, economically, politically and socially. I believe all women have a right to an education, to contraception, to a career, to a vote, and to equality in their relationships.
I do not, however, believe in pushing the feminist movement in a counterintuitive manner.
The 2018 Global Slavery Index report states that $127.7 billion worth of garments at risk of including modern slavery in their supply chain are imported each year by G20 countries. These imports help to bankroll a global economy that trapped 40.3 million people in modern slavery in 2016 - 71 percent of whom were women.
If you identify as a fashion-loving feminist, then you need to know the facts.
