The Other Women's Movement
Dorothy Sue Cobble is Associate Professor in the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers University and a former Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center
The years between suffrage and the 1970s were not blank pages in the history of feminism. Women in the labor movement advanced the cause of women's rights on the shop floor and in the union hall. Their achievements increased after World War II. Dorothy Sue Cobble explains the origins and success of working-class feminism.
