Review: The book’s contribution to both gender and workers’ education is quite substantial, an excellent and informative read.

Gendering the Memory of Work: Women Workers’ Narratives

Routledge, 2016

The author draws on cutting edge theoretical approaches and insights in memory studies, neo-materialism and discourse analysis, particularly looking at entanglements and intra-actions between places, bodies and objects. The book addresses a significant gap in the literature by focusing on the memory of work from a gendered perspective.

Sewing, Fighting and Writing: Radical Practices in Work, Politics and Culture,


What riches lie within Maria Tamboukou’s wonderful Sewing, Writing and Fighting. She provides an analytically outstanding feminist genealogy of the submerged histories of some fascinating women, who were socialist revolutionaries, unionised workers, militant feminists, thinkers and writers as well as seamstresses, and in a way that is both engaging and thought-provoking.
