Sexual harassment in maquiladoras, MexicoPhoto: Photo: CETIEN

Mexican labour rights organisation CETIEN is trying to raise awareness of the sexual violence that frequently occurs at the large maquiladoras in the electronics industry in Jalisco. With this project CETIEN hopes to make sexual harassment something workers can more easily identify and distinguish from other types of work related harassment, as it is protected by law. At the moment, workers often fail to recognize it and stay silent.
