Abstract: Clara Lemlich was a factory girl who lived in New York City in the early nineteen hundreds. Lemlich recognized the unsanitary working conditions that many women were subject to in factories and vowed to make a difference. This movie provides a look at Lemlich's life and her active involvement in the "Garment Workers Strike of 1909" and how she inspired other activists to fight for their cause leaving a lasting impression on America's labor industry.
