Every woman has faced sexual harassment -- on the job, in the market, in the streets. Every woman knows of a boss who offers you a better job -- a bargain for sexual favors. And women know it's a vicious bargain. Today, some women have begun to speak out. But there are many more -- working class women -- who would lose their jobs if they did. The fight for their rights goes through the fight of the whole working class against a society run by all kinds of predators. That fight may have started -- in West Virginia and Oklahoma -- where teachers have been fighting for better wages, better schools and their dignity.

***Reading list is posted at the end of the event description.*** The West Virginia teachers' strike has now spread to numerous other states, including Oklahoma, Kentucky, and Arizona. For the April meeting of the Detroit Jacobin Reading Group, we will discuss this remarkable surge in public-sector labor militancy and what it means for the broader left and for the fight against austerity. We will meet in the Old Fine Arts Room on the third floor of the Detroit Public Library, Main Branch. The following resources are available for some background on the West Virginia teachers' strike. It's also possible that some people might have a lot of interest in the subject but not a lot of time to do the readings, in which case we would still love to have you at the conversation on Tuesday. People without a lot to say who still want to learn about the issue and how to get involved are also welcome. Blanc, Eric.
