The Diary of a Shirtwaist Striker

The Diary of a Shirtwaist Striker

Theresa Serber Malkiel
Introduction by Françoise Basch

"It is splendid, finally, to have this novel back in print . . . . Nothing before or since has so successfully captured the political and emotional spirit of the women's strike of 1909."—Alice Kessler-Harris, Rutgers University

"Malkiel was a politically sophisticated and well-seasoned socialist organizer and propagandist, and she used the medium [of the diary1to draw out certain lessons about the relationship of class and gender from the events of the strike. Françoise Basch's fine introduction provides the necessary context and makes Malkiel's novel/political tract readily accessible to today's readers."—Mary Jo Buhle, Brown University
