Educator and historian Carolyn Ivanoff will present a lecture in costume on the year of 1915 in Bridgeport - the triumphant, striking summer. World War I transformed Bridgeport, Connecticut into a powerful arsenal for the allied war effort.  Women workers would play an important role in workers’ rights.  Over 12,000 striking women would win the eight-hour day mostly without any national labor involvement.  Presented with the League of Women Voters.
