EIRENE project member Dagmar Wernitznig presented a paper via Zoom about her research on women tobacco workers at the hybrid conference and colloquium with online sessions ‘Gender, Work and Organization: A (De)Colonial View beyond the Borders,’ hosted at the Santo Tomás University in Bogota, Colombia, from 21 to 24 June 2022. Dagmar’s talk was part of the stream ‘Feminisms and Intersectionalities in/at Work, Employment and Organizations: Articulations, Fractures and Pluriversal Encounters’ and unpacked female political and public agency within tobacco factories by highlighting and contrasting several twentieth-century case studies at the intersections of gender, class, and ethnic or migratory backgrounds. Her contribution examined the diverse and differing working conditions for women employees in the tobacco sector and their socio-economic implications from a national and transborder perspective, while also discussing ‘genderized’ processes and cultural norms within cigarette and cigar manufacturing plants.
