Description

Kathleen Winslow offers a Labor story rich in advocacy and action focused on improving the lives of low income people in general and women in particular. During law school in the early 1970s, she shared in leading the movement to create a Rape Crisis Center on the UNM campus. Winslow worked for Legal Aid in Iowa and New Mexico. She also started the Battered Women’s Shelter in Albuquerque. Her stint working for UPS (United Parcel Services) as a Teamster provided a change from the challenges of legal aid work. Involved locally in Albuquerque with the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW), she also attended the National CLUW Conference in New Orleans in the early 1980s where she met Union women from around the country who were working to improve the terms and conditions of their workplaces.
