Rose Schneiderman, a garment worker and union organizer, works next to the large pile of material that makes up her day's assignment. Her experience in sweatshops together with her middle and upper class contacts in the Women's Trade Union League enabled her to bridge class lines, at least temporarily, and helped stabilize relationships that provided social, political, and economic support during the shirtwaist strike and later.
