Summary
When Clara arrived in America, she didn't know that young women had to go to work and grow up fast. But that didn't stop Clara. She went to night school and helped her family by sewing in a factory. She never accepted that girls should be treated poorly with low pay, so she led the largest walkout of women workers the country had seen. She learned that everyone deserved a fair chance, to stand and fight for what she wanted, and, most importantly, that she could do anything she put her mind to
Summary
An illustrated account of immigrant Clara Lemlich's pivotal role in the influential 1909 women laborer's strike describes how she worked grueling hours to acquire an education and support her family before organizing a massive walkout to protest the unfair working conditions in New York's garment district
