Women Laborers Wrap Coil in A Factory Ca. 1904Unknown - 1904
By the beginning of the 20th century, many American women found employment outside of the home working in the garment industry. These jobs were often focused on repetitive movements and moving products along in an assembly line. Unsafe conditions at many work places led some women to join the labor movement. This movement became more mainstream after the Triangle Shirtwaist Company fire, in which 146 women died when the building they were working in caught fire and they were unable to escape because of locked doors and windows.
