Abstract

This timely and detailed examination of the intersections of feminism, labor politics, and global studies reveals how women across the world are transforming labor unions. Situating specific case studies within broad feminist topics, Suzanne Franzway and Mary Margaret Fonow concentrate on union feminists mobilizing at multiple sites, issues of wages and equity, child care campaigns, work-life balance, and queer organizing, demonstrating how unions around the world are broadening their focuses from contractual details to empowerment and family and feminist issues. Making Feminist Politics connects the diversity of women's experiences around the world both inside and outside the home and highlights the innovative ways women workers attain their common goals.
