Bananeras
Women Transforming the Banana Unions of Latin America
Women banana workers—bananeras—are waging a powerful revolution by making gender equity central in Latin American labor organizing.

"[Bananeras] is a vital accounting of the struggles still being waged."—Margaret Randall, author of When I Look Into the Mirror and See You: Women, Terror, and Resistance

Women banana workers have organized themselves and gained increasing control over their unions, their workplaces, and their lives. Highly accessible and narrative in style, Bananeras recounts the history and growth of this vital movement and shows how Latin American woman workers are shaping and broadly reimagining the possibilities of international labor solidarity.
