UID 121
Title Women Leading the Labor Movement Surge
Description Event Information A conversation with women labor activists on a surge in labor activism. About this event The labor movement in the United States has gained international attention over the past several months as workers nationwide engaged in powerful collective action, and women have been leading much of the current surge. Thousands of workers across the country haven’t hesitated to take action—whether it was leaving jobs in the Great Resignation, organizing, or going on strike. What role have women played in sparking and energizing the current labor activism? And is U.S. women’s labor leadership at a new peak? Join us on Wednesday May 4, from 2:00 to 3:15 pm ET as we discuss the work of women labor activists over the past year and lift up the invaluable contributions of these organizers and communities.
