May 5: Boston Women Finding their Voices -- Boston’s working-class immigrant community during the early 20th Century As Boston’s working women were fighting for rights in the workplace, suffragists were demanding the right to vote. Both the women’s trade unionism and suffrage movements were led by proud, defiant women who were divided along class lines. It wouldn’t be until the early 20th century that suffragists & non-native working women would realize that to achieve the goals they would need to unite.
