“I want to learn to defend myself from whoever tries to oppress me, whether it’s my husband, my union, or my boss.”—a mujer bananera
The banana is a ubiquitous fruit, yet many of us do not know how and by whose efforts it reaches our table. But on the plantations of Honduras, bananeras mujeres are waging a powerful revolution that places gender equity at the center of global class politics. In this compelling example of transnational feminism and labor solidarity, alliances were built among six other banana-exporting countries—empowering women at every level of their organizations for stronger unions and a more powerful front in the face of transnational corporations.
Lively and accessible, El Poder de las Mujeres Es Poder Sindical is a people’s history of a vital movement in the worldwide struggle for justice.
