From the abstract:
Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014, making it a timely moment to re-examine this unique labor movement women’s organization. CLUW is widely acknowledged for its contribution to the gendered transformation of U.S. unions—this article examines whether it is still a space of social creativity and a force for social change. It does so in the context of three major challenges facing CLUW and other women’s groups/union organizations in the contemporary era: (1) the autonomy-integration challenge; (2) the diversity challenge; (3) the membership-activism challenge.
