WW edited cov 23102019Working Women is a book of photographs and text published by The Sached Trust/Ravan Press in 1985 and Pluto Press in 1986.

Using interviews and photographs, Working Women documents the daily lives of ordinary working class women in South Africa. From the low-paid forestry worker to the big city sex worker, women tell their tales of survival, triumph and despair. Despite the complex web of legislation and gender discrimination, in the early 1980s black women were beginning to exert their economic muscle to form a growing and important sector of the workforce. The book was written for the nascent trade union women's movement, but was also used extensively by literacy workers and community organisers.
