A great reminder of the battles fought by women

and labor workers in the early 1900s. I couldn't decide at the end of the book if I hoped the characters were real or fictional. The struggles and passion of those that fought these battles were portrayed beautifully.

A very thought provoking story.

Bella, Yetta and Jane, Bella Yetta and Jane. Three unlikely allies with different paths yet destined to change our future. What if the shirt waste strike and fire hadn't happened? I wonder.
