UAW Women’s History Month Spotlight: Julie Kushner
Women have had important roles in UAW history and today women leaders in the UAW are continuing that legacy of leadership. Region 9A Director Julie Kushner has spent her life advocating for social justice for workers and women. Her earliest memories are of her mother showing her what women can achieve when they decide to make the world a better place.
March is Women’s History Month. From the sit-down strikes of 1936-37 through the war years of Rosie the Riveter, from the postwar fight for jobs to today’s campaigns for pay equity and safe workplaces, women have played a key role in UAW history.

Now is the time to commit to more activism for women
March is Women’s History Month. Women have always made history and they reminded us of their power by marching in record numbers on Jan. 21.

Women and their supporters arrived in Washington on buses or flew from all over the country to show the power of women to defend their rights, encourage each other to donate and get involved in causes that promote women, and to run for public office once they return home.
Marc Stepp was moved to strive for social justice after what he saw during World War II. He was drafted into the Army right after beginning work at the Chrysler Highland Park Plant.
