(from the back cover) In the winter of 1909, 20,000 new York shirtwaist makers, most of them young immigrant women, walked off their jobs. The "girls" struck for thirteen long weeks. The Diary of a Shirtwaist Striker, written in 1910 by a Jewish immigrant who was a labor activist and a militant socialist, presents a fictional firsthand account of this important chapter in American labor history.
