    Abstract

    Schneiderman was a trade unionist leader, suffragist and social reformer who dedicated her life to improving the lives of American working people. She organized women workers' fight for equitable pay, safety standards, better working conditions and social welfare provisions. Her vision of labor justice shaped many of the groundbreaking legislative measures of the New Deal: the National Labor Relations Act (1935), the Social Security Act (1935), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (1938).
