The Team

Roslyn Feldberg ROSLYN FELDBERG  began her working life as a sociologist, teaching and doing research at Boston University on the work of women, especially those in female-dominated occupations. Fifteen years later, she began working as a researcher for the Massachusetts Nurses Association(MNA) and transitioned into a negotiator and labor representative.

Retired from the MNA after twenty-six years, she moved to Hanoi, Viet Nam with her husband. There she taught English and lectured about nursing in the US. On returning to the US, she lectured on collective bargaining and taught a women's labor history course at the MNA. Questions from the nurses in the class made her realize the importance of women understanding their own labor history. With the encouragement of the MNA, the nurses in the class and especially Jeanine Hickey, she began work on this, her first documentary. Contact Roslyn by email at
