Women in Labor Movements
Students explored materials from the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, acquired by the Rubenstein Library in 2015, and the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture to tell stories of how the activist history documented in the Rubenstein Library—from 19th century textile mill organizing to the 2016 Allen Building sit-in by Duke Students and Workers in Solidarity—might impact current debates and struggles in the labor movement locally, nationally, and internationally.
