Description

This powerful, intimate novel in verse is inspired by the real-life story of Clara Lemlich, a spirited young woman who emigrated from Russia to New York at the turn of the 20th century and fought tenaciously for equal rights. Bucking the norms of both her traditional Jewish family and societal conventions, she refused to accept substandard working conditions in the factories on Manhattan's Lower East Side and, for years, devoted herself to the labour fight, speaking up for those who were suffering in silence. In time, she convinced the women in the factories to strike, organise and unionise, which culminated in the famous Uprising of the 20,000.
