CORE 003 SC - United: Women's Work and Collective Action


Blamed for a spectrum of societal ills, labor unions are commonly portrayed as impediments to progress. Such traditional values as collective bargaining have become bitterly contested. This course explores key moments in the history of the labor movement since the start of the century, with a focus on the development of organized labor and, given the rise in new employment opportunities for women created by the expansion of global capitalism, the categorization of certain jobs as "women's work." At stake in these battles are contemporary notions of justice, equality, and collectivity.

Course Credit: 1.0
