The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911 took the lives of 146 workers, most of whom were young, female immigrants between the ages of 13 and 23. These lives fell victim to corporate greed, corruption, and a prejudice that still raises its head in modern politics. What can these senseless actions teach us about ourselves and society over 100 years later?
