Note: 
A well-written account of the lives of young working women in 1909. Individuals who were involved in the burgeoning labor movement, of which the garment workers' strike was a seminal event, are brought to life and the story of their struggles is tense and exciting. An interesting and rare perspective on class issues is given, as Dash shows how working class strikers - mostly Jewish and Italian girls - were aided by upper class women, who were able to bring national attention to the plight of workers.
