Abstract

This poster will discuss the activism of women during the Labor Movement in the 19th and 20th centuries. It will cover specific unions consisting of Asian and Jewish American women. We focused on issues such as improved wages and working conditions for immigrant workers, and the representation of minority groups within larger labor unions. These issues are supported by documents including newspaper clippings, photos of parades and protests, and personal letters between labor activists
