STEADFAST
FRANCES PERKINS, CHAMPION OF WORKERS' RIGHTS
Jennifer J. Merz
Synopsis
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.
