In Tamil Nadu, Southern India, millions of adolescents and young women work in the textile industry, from the cotton weaving to the production of ready-to-wear garments, for both local and the international market. They often come from poor and rural areas, where there are no income alternatives neither for them nor for their families, especially given the constant and persistent decline of agriculture. It is in these villages that the “brokers”, acting as intermediaries between the companies in need of a sizable and docile workforce, and local population ever more desperate, every year recruit hundreds of thousands of girls.
