Susan Eisenberg, 2016 Twink Frey Visiting Social Activist, returns to Ann Arbor to share her virtual exhibit titled On Equal Terms: Gender and Solidarity.

Her multimedia work chronicles the experiences of women working in trade and union positions and how they navigate sexism and discrimination in male-dominated workplaces. Featured in her virtual exhibit will include a 6 minute video of Stella, a life-sized composite figure of women working on a ladder. Her (Stella) work uniform is decorated by actual statements from women's harassment while on the job site. Susan's virtual exhibit will fully launch April 8, 2018 during the 40th anniversary of the federal affirmative action guidelines that opened construction jobs to women.

In addition to her work On Equal Terms, Susan has published poetry including Stanley's Girl and the 20th anniversary edition of We'll Call You If We Need You: Experiences of Women Working Construction (published through Cornell University Press).
