The rapid growth of the garment industry in NYC at the turn of the 20th century brought a large number of young, unmarried women into the workplace. Often forced to work in sweatshop-like conditions, they were easily exploited by their employers but drew upon a spirit of independence to begin organizing unions, charities and newspapers. In 1909, when a general strike was called, 20,000 to 30,000 workers joined the protest.
