TITLE: Women in Labour History

PUBLISHED BY: Zinn Education Project, USA


WHO IS THIS FOR? This web guide can be read and enjoyed by study circles, labour educators and union leaders particularly concerned with gender and women and work.

The impact women have made in labour history is often missing from textbooks and the media despite the numerous roles women have played to organise, unionize, rally, document, and inspire workers – both men and women, children and adults, citizens and immigrants – to fight for justice. From championing better workplace conditions to cutting back the 12-hour day to demanding equal pay across racial lines, this web guide features a few of the women who have contributed to the labour movement in America.
