Description/Abstract of your Event:
What does a feminism for the 99% look like? Ask the hotel housekeepers who unionized a DoubleTree hotel owned by Harvard. These women fought the first female president of Harvard to gain a union. They asked Sheryl Sandberg to "lean in" with them, to no effect. The class divide in feminism is dramatized in Clean In, a short film about their struggle, directed by Rebecca Rojer and produced by The Nation magazine. This bilingual 22min film features music by Downtown Boys and is a companion video to Sarah Leonard's essay in The Nation, "Housekeepers Versus Harvard: Feminism for the Age of Trump."
