Rose Schneiderman (April 6, 1882 ? August 11, 1972) was a Polish-born American socialist and feminist, and one of the most prominent female labor union leaders. As a member of the New York Women’s Trade Union League, she drew attention to unsafe workplace conditions, following the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911, and as a suffragist she helped to pass the New York state referendum of 1917 that gave women the right to vote. Schneiderman was also a founding member of the American Civil Liberties Union and served on the National Recovery Administration’s Labor Advisory Board under President Franklin D. Roosevelt. She is credited with coining the phrase “Bread and Roses,” to indicate a worker’s right to something higher than subsistence living.
