Sisters in the Brotherhoods. Working Women Organizing for Equality in New York City, By Jane LaTour, 308 pp. $25

A remarkable account of an inspiring chapter in the history of women in the workers movement, told by the women who lived it. Former AUD Women's Project Director Jane LaTour has written what Z Magazine calls a "gem of a book" that, in the words of one sister in the Botherhood of Carpenters, "captures the real lives of tradeswomen through stories that are poignant, raw, and uplifting." A must read for all who support the struggles of workers for justice, equality and democratic unionism.
