This brief and anonymous confession of a young female worker (published 
by Al Jazeera, and coming from the book “Žene govore”/“Women speak”) 
comes from one of Serbia’s many cases of superexploitation in both 
private and state sector, and in both domestic and foreign-owned 
companies. Namely, the Serbian public is constantly shocked by images of 
brutal factory labor. It has recently been reported that in certain 
companies, women are expected to wear red tape around their arms during 
menstruation because they are considered to be of lower productivity.
