Overview

“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.

Overview

“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.
