Week 10: Strong Women
My grandfather’s niece was Mara Taseva who was an activist for textile workers in Bulgaria. She was imprisoned a number of times. Towards the end of her life, she was imprisoned and tortured. She never gave up and was an inspiration to workers
came to Yakima Washington.We went to see the house when we visited Pleman and his wife in Popovo. Zack and Vera set it up for us to visit. They had translated the letters from my grandparents during WWI. They were separated for 7 years. The first picture above is of her tape measure when she worked in Textiles. She was a strong woman, like Norma Rae, in the United States who was an activist for workers.She tried to make life better for the workers. Strong women.
