Professor Deirdre McCann’s project on Decent Work Regulation launches a short film - ‘Rethabile’s Story’

(3 April 2019)

The project on Decent Work Regulation in Africa, led by Professor Deirdre McCann, has just launched Rethabile’s Story, a short film on life in the Lesotho garment factories. Produced by Dreamscope TV, the documentary tells the story of Rethabile Ratsiu, a former factory worker in Maseru, Lesotho, who narrates her experience of working life in Lesotho, the workers’ dreams for their future, the need for more effective labour rights, and her involvement in the Decent Work Regulation Project.

The film highlights the work of Decent Work Regulation in Lesotho, where it is has a particular focus on work-life and gender dynamics in the garment sector, and how these challenges relate to informal work.

The full version of Rethabile’s Story will be launched later this year at the Regulating for Decent Work Conference, which is co-hosted by Durham Law School and will be held in the International Labour Office, Geneva from 8-10 July 2019.
