Bev Grant and Working Women

This playlist celebrates women’s contributions to worker’s rights and the labor movement. Featuring Bev Grant and other momentous figures in labor history—from Florence Reece to Hazel Dickens, Barbara Dane, Peggy Seeger, and Anne Feeney—the songs tell of hard-working women, oppressed women, women’s liberation, and women standing up for justice. It accompanies Bev Grant’s Artist Spotlight piece, in which she reflects on her career as a working-class woman musician.
