    Abstract

    Based on extensive sample survey, the paper provides insights into the impact of the deceleration experienced by Bangladesh’s RMG sector during 2001. The study attempts to capture the impact on the livelihood concerns of women workers particularly in terms of family-poverty, women’s employment and women’s empowerment. It further identifies coping strategies of the women in the face of the emerging hardship and makes recommendations to address the attendant challenges with a view to creating employment opportunities, particularly for working women in the context of Bangladesh.
