Sheila Packas insight:

This article provides vivid detail about the labor strife on the Iron Range. Women also walked the picket lines, and on a few occasions, were the target of abuse.  Some women in Hibbing, despite holding babies in their arms, were pushed to the ground by authorities.  One woman in Aurora was charged with property damage--cutting lines on a locomotive.
