Women’s History Month Book Launch: High Voltage Women – Breaking Barriers at Seattle City Light
March 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm UTC+0
A compelling account of pioneering electrical tradeswomen whose fight for affirmative action and against job harassment changed their workplace, their union, and their city. Radical Women is incredibly proud of the role played by our founder Clara Fraser and other members in an effort that began in the 1970s and continues today. The book shows how tradeswomen built alliances with men of color, white male union members and office staff to change the culture of management abuse and life-threatening sexism and racism at Seattle City Light.
“This amazing story gives hope and inspiration to women in every workplace.” — Louis Walter, Business Manager, IBEW Local #77
