Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Film: 'The Ninth Floor Door'

Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Film: 'The Ninth Floor Door'

Organization: Chicago Women's Liberation Union Herstory Project

Description: ONE MORE CHANCE to see "The Ninth Floor Door," powerful play about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York in 1911.

Saturday, March 3, 2012
Registration, Coffee & Cookies: 1:00 - 1:30 p.m.
Grace Place Community Center
637 S. Dearborn, Chicago
Tickets: $10 at the door

In addition, a panel:

*   ask questions of the playwright/director
*   hear a relative of Hannah Shapiro, one of first 5 women to walk out of Hart,Schaffner & Marx in Chicago in 1910, speak about Hannah's life
*   hear Katie Jordan tell of her experiences in the 1970s getting work at a downtown department store as their first African American tailor and fitter
*   listen to what the AAUW does for working women.

The venue at Grace Place is wonderful. Play and panel will be done upstairs in an intimate setting with wonderful acoustics. Refreshments will be downstairs.

At a time when many people are working longer hours, without benefits, when competition between companies almost "mandates" that they squeeze their workers more, this play and this topic are right on target.

Come and have a good time!!
