SUPREME COURT RULES AGAINST WOMEN
AND LABOR UNIONS ON SAME DAY!

 


St. Louis, Missouri on September 27, 2014
Renaissance Grand Hotel
800 Washington Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63101

VFA will celebrate the contribution of labor women to the second wave women’s movement.  Many people are not aware of the role labor women played in the early history of the movement, especially in NOW.

With its recent decisions, the Supreme Court of the U.S. has reinforced why this untold story matters.

VFA will bring the story to life at an event on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at the Renaissance Grand Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.

“Labor & the Women’s Movement:  The untold story and why it matters” will review the history, including what really happened to Rosie the Riveter.  Young feminist historians who are writing about the second wave will present their new scholarship.  Success in the legal system will be highlighted, as will work being done today by a number of contemporary organizations.  The closing session will look to the future and stress the importance of women and labor working together to preserve the victories that have been gained.

Saturday night will feature an awards dinner, honoring feminists and labor leaders.

More details on the agenda and speakers are available on the event website, http://www.vfa-midwest.org

 BEVERLY ANN FITCH McCARTHY
BORN A FEMINIST, AROUND THE CLOCK ACTIVIST

I was born Beverly Ann Fitch in St Louis Missouri in 1933, the only child of Clyde Fitch and Else Clara Marie Graf Fitch. Among other things my parents taught me the importance of work well done.  “If you cannot do it right, do not do it at all, be courteous to adults, be on time, be honest, and tell the truth.”
