The Top 10 Jewish Women in Labor History

| |

Though we at JWA celebrate women’s history all year round, March brings us the great opportunity of Women’s History Month. This year, March also brings the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. JWA will mark the day with a luncheon and walking tour; a whole slew of other commemorative events will be happening throughout the month. Given the centennial of this major event in labor history, as well as the current situation in Wisconsin, there has never been a better time to focus on labor organizing and the pivotal role Jewish women have played in its history.

That’s why we are sharing our Top 10 list of Jewish women in American labor history in a 10 part series for Women’s History Month.
