Women at Work: Labor Activism

Series Site

The pioneering contributions of women to the labor movement have too often been erased from history—but these films stand as powerful correctives. From bracing, first-hand documents of front-line activism to galvanizing portraits of courageous women who battled sexism while leading the charge for workers' rights, these urgent stories illuminate the intersections of feminism and family, sacrifice and activism, community and union-building. This is the first installment in an ongoing series exploring the complex subject of women's work from a variety of perspectives.
