No Small Change

Marusya Bociurkiw, Harriet Hume and Ruth Bishop

1985, 54:00 minutes, colour, English


No Small Change gives us a first-time look at the experience of women retail workers during the historic Eaton's strike of 1985. For the first time in their lives, 1,500 Eaton's workers, women, walked off the job.
Music by Arlene Mantle and the Red Berets, humourous episodes, news clips and lively discussion make this tape entertaining as well as educational.
