  • The inspiring true story of Clara Lemlich, a young immigrant girl who led the biggest strike of women workers in U.S. history


    When Clara Lemlich arrived in America, she couldn't speak English. She didn't know that young women had to go to work, that they traded an education for long hours of labor, that she was expected to grow up fast.

    But that did not stop Clara: She went to night school, spent hours studying English, and helped support her family by sewing in a factory.

    Clara never quit. And she never accepted that girls should be treated poorly and paid little. So Clara fought back. Fed up with the mistreatment of her fellow laborers, Clara led the largest walkout of women workers in the country's history.

    Clara Lemlich was a leader of the Uprising of 20,000, the massive strike of shirtwaist workers in New York's garment industry in 1909. In wonderfully vivid and energetic language-and complete with engaging and informative historical back matter-this nonfiction picture book makes Clara's powerful, inspirational story accessible for all readers.
