guest speaker Steffi Domike + film screening of “labor’s corner”

We talked about gender and labor with steffi and she told us about the documentary she was apart of titled “Women of Steel” which is described as" Talks with several women who were single heads of households, and who found work in steel mills in the 1970s. They tell about their new job security, independence, and the role of unions in the workplace. Although most of the women were laid off as mills closed in the 1980s, they now actively demonstrate for employment opportunities, as well as continually support their families."
