The book addresses the case of child labour by moving beyond the usual concern that regards the phenomenal essentially as an 'evil', harmful and corrupt, and instead attempts to assess children’s work in the relevant socio-economic and cultural context. It examines the specification of girl child labour in the garment industry and underlines how tradition , culture, religion, and sexual division of labour determine the parameters within which they live, work and resist patriarchal control and differential treatment at home and in the workplace.
