“Feminist Praxis in a Trade Union Gender Project”

“Feminist Praxis in a Trade Union Gender Project” by Sue Ledwith appears in Industrial Relations Journal, Vol. 37, No. 4, pp. 379-399, July 2006. It can be downloaded here. Below is the abstract:

“Research as political feminist engagement is explored through analysis of a collaborative west-east European gender equality project with trade union women. Similarities with and differences between forms of labourist and feminist research praxis are discussed. These are brought together through the Freirian concept of conscientizacao or conscientisation, a dialogic pedagogy which has at its core the dialectic of reflection and action. It is proposed that such a framework can be usefully deployed for gendering analysis of ‘engaged’ industrial relations.”
