What does a feminism for the 99% look like? Ask the hotel housekeepers who unionized a Doubletree Hotel owned by Harvard University. These women fought the first female president of Harvard to gain a union for themselves. Directed by Rebecca R Rojer and featuring music by Downtown Boys, this film was produced as a companion piece to the essay “Housekeepers Versus Harvard: Feminism for the Age of Trump” written by Sarah Leonard and published by The Nation.
