We Shall Not Be Moved is a non-fiction account of the women's factory strike of 1909. This book is very sad and factual. I couldn't believe all that was said.
This Joan Dash book has information on shirtwaist companies. There were descriptions of different cultures and what the shirtwaist companies did to them. You'll learn the hours and the pay, though near bare, of the working girls. Lastly, you can see some wonderful photos from the day first hand in the book.
Joan Dash has compiled the information for We Shall Not Be Moved beautifully. I was hooked into the sad and horrid facts. I felt sorry for all of those ladies. My favorite part was when they explained the hours per week. I believe some girls had to work 80! I recommend this book for girls ages 12 and up.
