INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
March 8, 2014
"...Believing the interests of Labor--whether that labor be done by male or female--are identical, and should receive the same protection and the same pay, we, the women compositors of New York, have taken the initiative in this and formed the Women's Typographical Union No. 1 of New York."
-Augusta Lewis, Organizer of Working Women, 1870
Augusta Lewis worked in the printing trades in what was then New York's Newspaper Row, just around the corner from today's Women's eNews Headquarters.
She quickly became a labor organizer-and was even fired for trying to unionize the staff of The Revolution, published by none other than Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. In response, Lewis organized the first and only chapter of the Women's Typographical Union.
She did this in her teens.
Women's eNews knows the power young women possess. And we are helping to harness that power through our latest initiative, the Teen Voices Virtual Newsroom, a place where teens can communicate to the world.
