Summary
Moe Brownstern writes about being a female fisherman and her work organizing fishing strikes against canneries who underpay the fishers. She provides personal accounts of strikes and accounts of fishermen who work in Kodiak. Moe writes about the socio-economic difficulties of organizing a strike for seasonal workers and her experiences with usually being one of very few women in the room at the National Seiners Association meetings. She also includes stories about dealing with scab workers, an interview with a deckhand, and book reviews. Additional elements are illustrations, poems and photographs.
