Clara Lemlich led the Uprising of N.Y. garment workers. "I am a working girl, one of those striking against intolerable conditions," she told the crowd. "And I have no further patience for talk." 700 of the women she led on the strike were arrested, 19 were sentenced to labor camps. The next year a fire in her workplace, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, killed 146 workers: steel doors had been bolted shut to prevent workers from going on breaks. She lived to be 96.

This photo is of Clara Lemlich. She was a leader of the garment workers' strike a year before the fire occurred. Had the workers' conditions been met, fewer fatalities would have occurred on the day of the fire.
