Book launch: Rebel Women in Australian Working Class History
Saturday 16 April 1.30 pm
Seaworks Maritime Precinct, Williamstown
Radical publisher Interventions has produced a lavishly illustrated new edition of this classic text, Rebel Women in Australian Working Class History. This book presents inspiring stories of the women of Broken Hill fighting strike breakers with axes and broom handles, through militancy during the depression and World War II to strikes by white collar workers, nurses and immigrant textile workers in the 1970s and 80s. The book uncovers and draws political lessons from these stories to show how working class women have joined with men as active agents in their own right. Janey Stone, a contributing author of Rebel Women and founder of Interventions, will introduce the book alongside Liz Ross and the editor Sandra Bloodworth at the Marxism Fesitval this year. Do not miss out on this special event.
