abstract
"Imagine leaving your lifelong home for a one-room flat in a city with a husband you barely know. You work beside 5,000 others in a factory, sewing 180 zippers on 180 sweaters each day. You're the first woman in your family ever to earn a paycheck, but it's barely enough to survive. Welcome to Monira's world, and that of countless other women in Bangladesh's booming garment trade - a complex world full of difficult choices and competing values. It's a brand new world made possible by Western consumers, each time we purchase clothes from a major retailer. And it's the world you're invited to explore in Four Million Threads." - NFB website.
