With Babies and Banners: the Story of the Women's Emergency Brigade
This pioneering movie tells the once unknown story of how the wives, sisters, mothers, and daughters of striking male workers in Flint, Michigan, helped them win the Great General Motors Sit-in Strike of 1937. Using archival footage from 1937, interwoven with portions of interviews done with nine female participants in the 1970s, director Lorraine Gray brings to life this neglected and inspiring story of how females contributed to the strike's victory and successful industrial unionism.
