- Thisarticle examines the policy responses from the government of Indonesia and Bangladesh to address the impact of liberalization in textiles and clothing towards women workers from 2010 to 2015. Using the gendered political economy perspective by Wedderburn & Jackson (2008) and Mengesha (2008), this article is aimed to answer the research question:How the two countries deliver their policy responses to overcome the impact of trade liberalization in textiles and clothing on women workers between 2010-2015? This study used a qualitative method with secondary data. The findings of this study suggest that the two countries reacted differently to address the impact of trade liberalization. The Indonesian governmenttends to response the changes byempowering the women workers through Government Regulation No.78 Year 2015 on Remuneration. On the other hand, The Bangladesh government tends to respond the changes by expanding their industries using the Export Processing Zones (EPZs).
