The interviews were held in the context of the research Women and labour in Dutch trade union history (working title), which Van Eijl is conducting for the IISH and which is to lead to a publication. The research covers the period from the 1950s onwards.
The women interviewed talk about (their experiences with) women’s work in the FNV (and/or its predecessors) from a position that they hold or have held within the federation. This may concern the Women’s Union or the Women’s Secretariat of the FNV, or one of the trade unions. The interview with Jenny Zwanepol was not conducted by Corrie van Eijl, but by Marian van der Klein.
Van Eijl previously wrote her dissertation on women and labour until 1940: Het werkzame verschil. Vrouwen in de slag om arbeid, 1898-1940, Hilversum: Verloren, 1994.
