This month we learn and talk about the first trade unions for women in the US, the Lowell Mill Girls, and the fight for the 10-hour day in the 1840s and 1850s! Ever wondered what early US working class struggles against industrialization were like? How the first trade unions came about? What lessons that period of history has for socialists today?
Join the Queer and Feminist Caucus for our monthly Working Class History Happy Hour, featuring working class struggles led by women and queer people throughout history.
This is an online meeting. RSVP here to get the Zoom link!
Join us on the Queer & Feminist Slack channel if you have ideas, would like to help organize, or have any questions! Coming up in future months: the General Strike of Enslaved People & the Civil War, the Paris Commune, and more!
