"Women Raise Their Hands Voting for a Strike" (from UNITE Archives, Kheel Center, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-3901). As a male union official looks on, female rank-and-file pledge to walk the picket lines. The scene dramatically displays women's commitment to union activism, as well as the gendered inequality of the ILGWU.
