Brave Girl: Clara and the Shirtwaist Makers' Strike of 1909

Brave Girl: Clara and the Shirtwaist Makers' Strike of 1909 - Michelle Markel, Melissa Sweet What an inspiring story! This is another woman hero from American history that, surprise!, was never taught in any history class I took in school, so it's my honor to bring this book to my students. I hope they can identify with Clara's spirit and her strong desire to learn English to better help with organizing - while honoring that she calls for the strike in her mother language.
