for Advanced Study
This seminar paper is part of a book-length project. It follows four women
in particular, Geraldine Roberts, Mary McClendon, Geraldine Miller, and
Dorothy Bolden, to examine how and why they launched local campaigns for
the rights of domestic workers.
All seminars are free and open to the public. Each seminar consists of a
discussion of a pre-circulated paper provided to our subscribers. (Papers
will be available at the event for those who choose not to subscribe.)
Afterwards the organizers will provide a light buffet supper. For more

We look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
