Mechthild Hart


Mechthild Hart taught and mentored at SCPS for 27 years and is now Professor Emeritus at DePaul University. Her classes, publications, and grassroots political activities have always centered on the various forms of social and political inequalities rooted in class-based, racialized, and gendered divisions of labor.  For more than a decade, she has been participating in the growing national and international movement of gaining dignity and respect for “work that makes all other work possible,” and has been involved in local efforts of organizing household workers in Chicago, and in passing the Illinois Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights.​​
