Virtual: Piecing it Together

Join us for a virtual program exploring the women who worked in New York’s garment industry and how they affected change. How does work shape who we are and how do we shape where we work? This tour looks at two families, the Rogarshevskys and the Wongs, who earned a living in the garment industry in the 20th Century. The Rogarshevsky teenagers worked in factories during the height of the workers’ rights movement in the 1910s, and Mrs. Wong was one of thousands of Chinese immigrant women who supported their families making clothes in the 1970s and 80s. How did they enter the industry? What role did garment work and labor unions play in their lives, and what lessons can we learn from their stories?

Cost: $10/device; free with Museum membership
