Women, Work, and Economic Justice: Past Struggles and Future Prospects
April 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Dorothy Sue Cobble
History and Labor Studies Professor Emerita, Rutgers University
Covid has widened the gulf between rich and poor, transformed work, and intensified the push for economic justice. Katherine Ellickson, raised in Ethical Culture circles in New York, is just one of the many mid-century labor leaders who laid the basis for today’s movements for wage justice, universal health care, and better work-life balance. This talk draws on the political wisdom of Ms. Ellickson and others to help us chart the future.
