Mollie and James001.jpg
Mollie married James West in 1948.

Mollie tells about a formative experience in high school in which she organized a strike to protest the funding cuts that would eliminate the school orchestra and other programs for students.

On May 30, 1937, Mollie West attended a rally in support of the workers strike at Republic Steel. The protest turned violent, changing Mollie's life.

In this video, Mollie talks about starting the "Midwest Daily Record" and working as a secretary for the communist newspaper. She also describes how she met her first husband, Carl Lieber, when he was hired as a reporter.

Mollie talks about the founding of CLUW and how it will help women and the labor movement.

When Mollie stood to speak at the 1973 ITU Convention, she became the first woman to address the union. With this bold step, she inspired change.
