- Clara and the Shirtwaist Makers' Strike of 1909
- By: Michelle Markel
- Narrated by: Lesa Lockford
- Length: 12 mins
When Clara 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 didn't stop Clara. She went to night school, spent hours studying English, and helped support her family by sewing in a shirtwaist factory. Clara never quit, and she never accepted that girls should be treated poorly and paid little.
