This picture book biography about Ukrainian immigrant Clara Lemlich tackles topics like activism and the U.S. garment industry. Clara led the largest walkout of women workers the country had seen.
From her short time in America, Clara learned that everyone deserved a fair chance. That you had to stand together and fight for what you wanted. And, most importantly, that you could do anything you put your mind to.
