The story of a young Ukrainian immigrant Clara Lemlich who, after arriving in America, was hired as a garment worker. When the men in the factory started to talk of striking, they didn't believe the girls would be tough enough to follow them. But Clara started urging the girls to fight for their rights and strike. She led walk outs and pickets. She was arrested 17 times and had six ribs broken, but still she continued. When small strikes weren't affecting any change, Clara spoke up and started the largest walk out in women's history. All winter long, the strike went on. By the time it ended, hundreds of factory owners agreed to let their workers start unions, shortened the work week, and raised the worker's salaries. The strike inspired women walkouts in Philadelphia and Chicago.
At the end of the story, there is more information about the garment industry. ( )

What a fantastic story! Brave Girl is about a young girl who comes to America with her family. Her father is not able to work, but she gets hired as a seamstress sewing dresses and skirts. Young girls in the factory industry are mistreated and overworked. Clara begins a strike. She rallies other girls that work with her to join her; she gets thrown in jail 17 times and abused by the men in the business; however, she persists.
I would read this to first through fourth graders; its portrays a great picture of what it was like to come to America in the 1900s. ( )

First of all i want to thank author Michelle Markel for this amazing book. A young girl pursuing the American dream is faced with harsh reality about the terrible work conditions she was in . Later on in the story she realized that being a female is not a burden . Being a female is only a burden for those who decide who can not see with their minds. The books advocates for women's rights and the power they have in the society , however this power is ignored most of the time , due to the power men have. This will be a great book to teach to children in a social studies class or during ELA class. empowering young females is very important , so they can be confident and know for sure they can reach anything they want.

"This girl's got grit, and she's gonna prove it."

I believe that author Michelle Markel has some of that grit too! I loved this book, truly. Brave Girl is the true story of Clara Lemilch, factory strike organizer, truth spewer, whistleblower, and overall badass babe! We watch this young woman transform, quite literally, by self-education and hard work. This book explores the terrible working conditions many immigrants faced during the early 1900s, especially young women in the garment industry factories.

The illustrations by Melissa Sweet set the tone throughout the book, turning her paintings into a collage-like spread, using fabric and random textiles to almost resembling a scrapbook. Sweet’s aerial shot of the individual rows of garment workers, choosing to make them look like patches of cloth themselves was deep! ( )

Cited in Mamaleh Knows Best by Marjorie Ingall.

Clara Lemlich comes to New York as an immigrant, and instead of school, she goes to work in a factory. She works long hours for little pay, and in unfair conditions; she becomes an instrumental figure in leading walkouts, strikes, and bringing about change.

There is some violence ("The bosses hire men to beat her and the other strikers. The police arrest her seventeen times. They break six of her ribs, but they can't break her spirit"), but in the end Clara and her fellow workers win better working conditions and better pay. ( )
