I am Maheen Sultan, a Global Fund for Women-supported activist in Bangladesh. I fight for the rights of garment workers. It sounds so basic but we have to keep saying it—women need to be considered as human beings, first and foremost. And as human beings, we should have equal rights. And security. And safety. And well-being. And dignity and respect. Everywhere—in the state, in society, in the family, in the workplace. And unless we keep a consistent approach with consistent support, women’s voices might be drowned out.
