Rebecca Feibish, Age 17 died 99 years ago today

99 years ago today, 146 women were burned or jumped to their deaths in the Triangle Shirtwaist Company Fire. Amber has a great account of the memorial in chalk across New York.

While I was in Austin, I saw an amazing performance of Slaughter City based on both The Jungle and the fire, as well as, modern meatpacking plants. If it is ever performed near you, go see it.
