The Working Women’s History Project tells the stories of Chicago women who have struggled to achieve rights and benefits for women in the workplace and in other social arenas.

  • We research the lives of activist women of the past and present who have made or are making contributions to social justice movements.
  • We produce performance pieces telling their stories and present them at a variety of venues, including our galas, in schools, unions, at arts festivals, and on CAN television.
  • We host events in which we invite women to tell their own stories and describe their work.
  • We publish their stories in pamphlets for schools, in our newsletters and on our website.
