Omtale Women Workers' Education, Life Narratives and Politics
This book highlights the catalytic role of workers' education in mobilizing political activism and women's involvement in labour struggles and politics. Through a comprehensive study of the gendered aspects of workers' education it explores the intellectual lives of women workers. Drawing on the letters and papers of Fannia Mary Cohn, a prominent figure in the US garment industry's trade union movement, it discusses and further theorizes the importance of gender as an analytical category in the forceful interaction of labour, education and migration histories. The significance of the visual turn in feminist narrative analytics is considered and the book puts forward a compelling case for the contribution of writing working women in the intellectual and cultural life of the twentieth century.
