: DC:*The parts assemblers in Malaysia and Indonesia often are women; for them, it is a way to escape from a predominantly patriarchal society.

*So Nike and Microsoft are actually paying for a third world feminist revolution. And here was me thinking that they had no social concience at all.
The fact that these places employ women almost exclusively is a simptom of the sickness, not a cure.
The idea that working in these factories is somehow an escape is quite bizarre. You should be deeply ashamed of yourself.
