At least one in five women suffer rape or attempted rape in their lifetime. Severe life events that cause a sense of loss, inferiority, humiliation or entrapment can predict depression. In Bangladesh, women are the traditional custodians of honour. There is a small population of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar near the border in the southeast.

Gender specific risk factors for common mental disorders that disproportionately affect women include gender based violence, socioeconomic disadvantage, low income and income inequality, low or subordinate social status and rank and unremitting responsibility for the care of others. For example, they can be nurses and midwives, and set up clinics in rural communities where there are no nearby hospitals. This is seen as the result of a strong preference for sons, leading to selective adoptions, and girls being more likely to be abandoned in early childhood. Harassment and abuse against workers is also extremely prevalent in Bangladesh. Violence related mental health problems are also poorly identified.

Their population declined from about 1 million in toin the late s. Other impediments to educational attainment for women include early marriage, cultural norms, and religious orthodoxy. In addition, more schools should be set up in rural areas, so that every family has a school close enough to them to send their children to. Women also have been getting the short end of the stick in the labour market.

Harassment and abuse against workers is also extremely prevalent in Bangladesh. As observed in the context of India's microcredit crisis ofclient poaching occurs where the poorest of individuals are given loans, even if they have little to no prospects of repayment.

In the International People's Health Assembly held in Bangladesh invoices of women spoke out against the threat 2008 book imposing international labour standards threatening their garment industry jobs. We also support grassroots social protection groups made up of social workers, doctors, religious leaders, teachers, and students to monitor domestic violence in their communities, and help victims access legal channels to settle domestic disputes and seek recourse.

This is partially due to 2008 book fact that it has had a female head of state for longer than any other country in the world. A textbook example… In the social sphere, Bangladesh is a textbook example of what is possible when women are involved in decision-making.

The Human Development Report shows that in the small business sector, for every dollar earned by a male, women make 12 cents in comparison. Sexual harassment and violence in the workplace are also common. When women dare to disclose their problems, many health workers tend to have gender biases which lead them to either over-treat or under-treat women.

These factors include things such as drought and population growth. The high prevalence of sexual violence to which women are exposed and the correspondingly high rate of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD following such violence, renders women the largest single group of people affected by this disorder.

This shows that if women were permitted to take positions of power they could greatly aid the development in Bangladesh, but unfortunately they are rarely given this responsibility. The Bangladeshi government, employers and workers organizations are making important strides in the right direction, with the support of the ILO and many development partners, but still a lot needs to be done.
