In this week’s #SolidaritySocialMedia we spotlight long-time WCSA member Lita Kurth. The first photo is of her with the iconic Rosie the Riveter at History Park in San Jose, taken in 2019. The second photo is the first women’s march in 2017. The biggest march in San Jose’s history.
Lita says that Rosie the Riveter ‘is an iconic working class woman’. Indeed! Rosie honors women who worked in the shipyards during WWII. She tells us of the second photo that ‘Trump presented a phony pro-working class image’ and adds that ‘anyone with knowledge of his hotel construction labor issues would have known this was not credible’. So true. The women’s marches were an amazing moment of solidarity to many women and working-class people around the world.
A member since 2011 (😮), Lita has remained with WCSA because she loves the conferences. ‘I always seem to make another friend each time I go. I greatly appreciate the Facebook group and the journal. I feel it is one small thing I can do to support and share real information about working class people’.
