"With Babies and Banners" The victory of the Great General Motors Sit Down Strike in Flint, Michigan in 1937 was key to the success of the CIO’s drive for industrial unionism. This film presents the untold story of the women – the working women, wives, mothers and sisters – who became the backbone of the strike. Forty years later, nine of these women reunite and dramatically show the relevance of their experience for working men and women today. 45m, 1978.

"You Have Struck A Rock!" This film commemorates the special contribution of South African women to the success of the anti-apartheid struggle. It recovers the remarkable “women’s campaigns” of the 1950’s against the hated pass system. Leaders in the movement recall this struggle and their imprisonment and banning. Yet they remain undaunted, demonstrating the South African proverb: “When you have touched a woman you have struck a rock.” 28m, 1981.
