Alice Kessler Harris a Professor of History at Columbia University, is a prominent labor and feminist historian. She has published numerous books on women and work, including Women Have Always Worked: A Historical Overview.

In the coming elections, it is important to remember that war and peace are as much \"women\'s issues\" as are health, the environment, and the achievement of educational and occupational equality.
