In January of 2014, on the day sewing workers stood up in Cambodia, a bullet hit the head of 21 year old female worker.

With the emergence of new services, digitalization and high-tech industry, the conditions for labor seems to have improved, nonetheless, why do these female workers still have to endure hardship and impoverished lives?
