Women’s History Month: A Reading List

Women's History Month Reading List

This Women's History Month, we at the AFL-CIO want to recognize that Women's history is not a separate history; it’s not a single month. Women's history is also America’s history, and it’s America’s labor history, too. Women workers have always been a crucial part of the fight for justice in the labor movement. And Women's history is not just the past—it’s also the present. That’s why we’ll be celebrating a new generation of women labor leaders and activists as well, featuring workers from across the country. Our Civil, Human and Women’s Rights Department has put together a list of recommended reading for the month—and we’re making it easy for you to support women authors and to buy union-made. We’ve sourced each book and linked to some union bookstore choices where you can order it online.
