Media Options

Women Labor Leaders: Some of the most effective labor organizers of this century have been women who have gone into the fields, factories and the offices to educate and empower workers to fight for better wages, working conditions and better lives. There’s a new oral history out about women labor organizers, it’s called “Rocking the Boat” and some of the women whose stories are told in its pages recently gathered at the George Meany Center for Labor Studies to talk about their experiences on the picket line and the union hall as far back as the 1930s and up to today.
