Hina Shah, Professor at Golden Gate University School of Law, and Director of the Women's Employments Rights Clinic, discusses the nature of work division and the right to rest.

Inspired by the exhibition Sabbath: The 2017 Dorothy Saxe Invitational, The Museum presents a series of gallery chats that explore labor and rest, our right to rest, and the long legal battles that entitled workers to an 8-hour day and weekend.

Professor Hina Shah has over twenty years of experience in employment litigation working for private union-side law firms and non-profits organizations and substantial appellate experience as a Staff Attorney at the Ninth Circuit. At the Clinic for over a decade, Professor Shah has helped transform it into a strategic partner with grassroots, community-based worker organizations to enhance their capacity for systemic change. The Clinic has been legal counsel for over five years to the California Domestic Workers Coalition, helping expand and protect overtime rights for domestic workers in California. As legal counsel to the Coalition, Professor Shah and her students provided legal and technical expertise to the Coalition, the Legislature and to the Governor's staff and helped educate worker leaders about the existing complex regulatory structure so they can make informed policy decisions. After securing permanent overtime rights for domestic workers in California, Professor Shah developed a popular Know Your Rights booklet and created Train the Trainers curriculum to empower and educate domestic workers about their new rights.

FREE with regular admission as follows: General Admission, $14; Students with a valid ID and Seniors, $12; Members and Youth 18 and under, free.
