Historian Dr. Blanche Wiesen Cook interviews historian Dr. Alice Kessler Harris about women and work and women in the labor movement.

Harris' books includes Women Have Always Worked: An Historical Overview (Feminist Press, 1982) and Out to Work: A History of Wage-Earning Women in the United States (Oxford University Press, 1982). Produced as part of a May Day 1982 special on WBAI. The program was engineered by Julie Light and produced by Eileen Zalisk.
