Call for Interviews: Canadian Working Women on Strike in the 1960s and 1970s

My name is Mason Godden and I am an M.A. student in the Canadian & Indigenous Studies program at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. My thesis explores mobilizations around key Ontario strikes involving women, or women as allies from 1965-1979. By looking at feminist labour support work, this study will contribute to an understanding of labour-community mobilizations, for example how women and men organized the families of strikers and the broader community to provide essential moral and political aid to striking workers.

ANN: MARX200 - The German Labour Movement beyond Social Democracy and Communism

Germany was not only the birthplace of Marx and Engels 200 years ago, but also the origin of strong working-class movements. While German socialists became dominant in the 2nd International before 1914, the year 1919 saw the split between Communism and Social Democracy—a political line that divided the country between 1949-1989, when West Germany considered itself a “social market economy” while East Germany built up a soviet-style planned economy.
