Many women stood up demanding rights for women starting in the late Nineteenth Century and early Twentieth Century, especially in the garment industry. Ms. Hershey will present a program about some of the many women who were active in the labor reform movement in this country. This is one of the many programs on women featured by the Wayne Public Library in 2020 in honor of the Centennial passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution giving women the legal right to vote.
This program is sponsored, in part, by the Wayne Public Library and the Friends of the Wayne Public Library. This project is funded in part by the Passaic County Cultural & Heritage Council from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
