Life and Labor Bulletin, Vol. IX, No. 7 - Serial No. 94, July 1931

Washington, D. C. The National Women's Trade Union League of America, 1931. An issue of this labor bulletin published by the National Women’s Trade Union League of America (NWTULA). The NWTULA was founded in Boston in 1903 primarily as an auxiliary of the American Federation of Labor, as well as an extension of the settlement movement. The organization was active in supporting strikes, organizing women into unions, and educating the public on the conditions of women workers. The leadership comprised both working class and upper class women, although by the 1920s, the group was primarily run by working class women. And although the organization supported the suffrage movement, it clashed with the National Woman’s Party over the Equal Rights Amendment, to which it was opposed. The group dissolved in 1950.

This issue features an article by Hamilton Holt, “The Way to Peace - International Cooperation,” an editorial, a lengthy review of the International Labour Conference held in Geneva, and six news items.
