From the Paper:

"Women were mistreated in factory jobs, but in this, they were no different from men. Women were usually kept in women's only dormitories; the social environment in which they operated was completely controlled by the company where they worked. In cities, women were employed as seamstresses in sweatshops and were usually paid by the piece. Immigrants always kept the pay low, and poor working conditions met with tragedy in 1911, when 141 women working at the Triangle Waist Company died in a fire or trying to escape the conflagration by jumping out the window.
