Book description

"Tuesday, November 23, 1909
I bent to my work. Everything seemed as usual. But it was not.... I could hardly keep sewing straight seams. We worked for two hours. There was only the sound of machines and Mr. Klein's voice, urging us to work faster. Around ten o' clock, Ruth stood up, took a whistle from her pocket, and blew it. "I now declare a strike in this shop!" All together we rose up out of our seats. Mr. Klein began to wave his arms and yell, "Girls! Sit down! Sit down!" No one listened. Without a word we took our coats and hats. And we walked out.
