abstract   bibtex   
It is a detailed telling of how the young, activist leaders of the Women's Trade Union League (notably Agnes Nestor and Elizabeth Maloney) secured a ten-hour workday for Illinois women. However, their intent had been to win the eight-hour day. That did not occur until 1937, despite their continued efforts.
