She Persisted: Clara Lemlich

Clara Lemlich immigrated to New York to escape danger in Ukraine, where she was born. She started working in clothing factories on the Lower East Side, only to realize that workers were being treated unfairly. So she stood up for the rights of workers, especially girls and women — and she won, changing the way factory workers were treated in America forever!

Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger, this chapter book biography by award-winning author Deborah Heiligman introduces young readers to a hero of the American labor rights movement! Kids will be shocked to learn how dangerous it was to work in Lemlich's day, and how hard she had to fight for basic rights for workers. This early chapter book even includes a set of tips for kids who want to make a difference today — so that, just like Lemlich, their persistence can change the world for the better.
