Rural Bangladeshi women are being trained by NGO CARE Bangladesh as part of a project on empowering women in this traditionally patriarchal society. Named 'Aparajita', which means 'women who never accept defeat', these women are trained to sell products in their villages and others around them from door-to-door, bringing global products from brands such as BATA, Unilever and GDFL to the most remote of villages, and bringing social and financial empowerment to themselves.
