FRANCES PERKINS, CHAMPION OF WORKERS' RIGHTS
Jennifer J. Merz
When Frances Perkins witnessed New York City's Triangle Factory fire in 1911, her burning desire to help American workers transformed into a lifelong mission. Frances worked to fix workplace injustices when women were discouraged from speaking up, let alone having careers. First woman in a U.S. Presidential Cabinet, she is the woman behind the New Deal. This is the inspiring story of a heroic trailblazer. She’s the most important woman you likely haven’t heard of – yet.
