The Seeds of Change: How the 9 to 5 Women's Labor Movement Rooted a Labor Revolution
MetadataShow full item record
The progression of women's rights in the workplace are inextricably linked to the formation of the first women's labor union and the growth of unions in the United States. While research in the labor studies and women's movements are vast, there is little research on the first women's labor movements. The literature reviewed for this project covers issues such as the need for women's labor unions, the growth of women's issues in unions, the history of women in unions, minorities in the workplace, the state of modern unions, and the history of the SEIU. Although there is an enormous amount of research on the formation of unions, immigrants in unions, the history of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and the history of women in unions, there is little research on the 9to5 movement (based out of SEIU District 925), which was one of the first successful women's labor unions. The lasting impacts of this union are unseen and unrepresented in union literature, despite the enormous impact the movement had on women in the workplace.
