Cannery women, cannery lives : Mexican women, unionization, and the California food processing industry, 1930-1950 by Vicki Ruíz( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women have been the mainstay of the grueling, seasonal canning industry for over a century. This book is their collective biography---a history of their family and work lives, and of their union. Out of the labor militancy of the 1930s emerged the United Cannery, Agricultural, Packing, and Allied Workers of America (UCAPAWA). Quickly it became the seventh largest CIO affiliate and a rare success story of women in unions. Thousands of Mexican and Mexican-American women working in canneries in southern California established effective, democratic trade union locals run by local members. These rank-and-file activists skillfully managed union affairs, including negotiating such benefits as maternity leave, company-provided day care, and paid vacations---in some cases better benefits than they enjoy today. But by 1951, UCAPAWA lay in ruins---a victim of red baiting in the McCarthy era and of brutal takeover tactics by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters

The practice of U.S. women's history : narratives, intersections, and dialogues by Eileen Boris( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last several decades, U.S. women?s history has come of age. Not only have historians challenged the national narrative on the basis of their rich explorations of the personal, the social, the economic, and the political, but they have also entered into dialogues with each other over the meaning of women?s history itself. In this collection of seventeen original essays on women?s lives from the colonial period to the present, contributors take the competing forces of race, gender, class, sexuality, religion, and region into account. Among many other examples, they examine how conceptions
