In this blog post, Nandini Ramamurthy looks into how different worker empowerment techniques and organizations can benefit and redress power imbalances.

In her post, Ramamurthy looks not only at traditional power imbalances between an owner and worker, but also gender imbalances.

She argues that digital initiatives in particular, can be used to counter gender-based discrimination and violence at work. She looks particularly at the case of garment factory workers in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, India.
