The National Women’s Trade Union League is formed in Boston.  It was organized as a coalition of working-class women, professional reformers, and women from wealthy and prominent families.  Its purpose was to “assist in the organization of women wage workers into trade unions and thereby to help them secure conditions necessary for healthful and efficient work and to obtain a just reward for such work.”
