How badly wrong can these cultural marxist morons get this. The shirts sold at Whistles were marketed as being made "ethically in the UK". Transpires they're made by women sleeping 16 to a room earning 62p an hour.

* Feminist T-shirts worn by politicians are made in 'sweatshop' conditions
* Migrant women in Mauritius are making the £45 tops for 62p an hour
* They say: 'We don't feel like feminists. We don't feel equal. We feel trapped'
* Machinists sleep 16 to a room and earn less than average wage on island
* T-shirt is sold in Whistles in aid of activism group The Fawcett Society 
* Deputy chief executive of the charity Dr Neitzert said they had originally been assured the garments would be produced ethically in the UK
* When they received samples they noted they had been made in Mauritius
* She added that if evidence emerges Whistles will have to withdraw range
* Harriet Harman wore shirt on front bench of the Commons during PMQs

Feminist T-shirts proudly worn by Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Harriet Harman are made in ‘sweatshop’ conditions by migrant women paid just 62p an hour, a Mail on Sunday investigation has revealed.

The women machinists on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius sleep 16 to a room – and earn much less than the average wage on the island.

The £45 T-shirts carry the defiant slogan ‘This is what a feminist looks like’. But one of the thousands of machinists declared: ‘We do not see ourselves as feminists. We see ourselves as trapped.’

In this special investigation by the Mail On Sunday, Ben Ellery reveals exactly what is like for these women...

They are the T-shirts designed to make a political statement about women’s rights – but the female workers making them are paid just 62p an hour in an Indian Ocean ‘sweatshop’.

Between shifts women making garments emblazoned with the slogan ‘This is what a feminist looks like’ sleep in spartan dormitories, 16 to a room.

I mean, where do I start?

The New Left has already served the interests of global capital (cheap labour in to unionised countries and cheap products in to post-industrial countries). Does feminism exist outside the upper middle classes and women competing against their landowning brothers for inheritance rights?
