Abstract

What roles should women's labor education play in the twenty-first-century labor movement? This question sparked a series of research, collaboration, and long-range planning activities undertaken by the Union Women's Labor Education Project starting in 2013. This article builds on work undertaken to date by the Union Women's Labor Education Project (in collaboration with the Women's Caucus of the United Association of Labor Educator [UALE] and the Berger-Marks Foundation), presenting a new analysis of relationships among women's labor education, leadership development, and movement building, with a particular focus on regional UALE women's summer schools as a case study.
