Camille Colatosti worked during the 1990s as a writer and as an advocate for working women. Originally writing as a staff member at Labor Notes, a Detroit-based labor journal, Colatosti left in 1992 but continued her writings for journals and publications focusing on labor and women, among other topics. During her time at Labor Notes, Colatosti wrote Stopping Sexual Harassment: A Handbook for Union and Workplace Advocates, and began to run workshops on this topic, raising awareness and knowledge of this issue. After leaving Labor Notes, Colatosti established the Working Women's Project, seeking to provide leadership training and support to working women, and provide them with information needed to achieve equality in the workplace. Through this Project, she continued her work against sexual harassment and traveled around the country providing harassment workshops to various groups including unions. Camille Colatosti also worked as an educator at local Metro-Detroit colleges and with Operation ABLE, an organization with which she taught basic computer skills to help adults with employment.
