Labour Feminism at the SSHC

CFP: sessions on women's working class activism

In connection with the CFP for the Social Science History Association annual conference from Gerry Ronning, I am interested in papers on labour/proletarian feminism and women's working class activism in any region or period.

I am trying to put together at least one panel on this subject for the SSHA in Baltimore this November with the view to possibly including speakers and/or papers in a conference to be held at the University of Toronto in the next few years on the broad topic of labour feminism.

If you are at all interested in presenting at the SSHA (or the future Toronto conference) please send me an abstract by 14 Feb (that gives me time to do the sorting out), I will then endeavour to put together the panel(s) with chairs and commentators.
