Bananeras: Women Transforming the Banana Unions of Latin America

Women banana workers—mujeres bananeras—are waging a powerful revolution by making gender equity central in Latin American labor organizing. Their successes disrupt the popular image of the Latin American woman worker as a passive bystander, challenging all of us to broadly reimagine the possibilities of international labor solidarity by placing women's human rights at the center of global class politics. Highly accessible and narrative in style, Bananeras is a inspiring look at the history and growth of this vital movement.

Author Dana Frank will be answering questions and reading from her inspiring new book.
