Pauline played an essential role in the early twentieth-century tenant, labor, socialist, and working-class suffrage movements. At nine she was working in a hairbrush factory and by eleven was laboring in the notorious Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. In 1909 she helped organize the Uprising of the 20,000, and was the first female general organizer of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union.
