  1. Sounds familiar – Bangladesh 2013! I don’t know that I’d call it misogyny – rather, exploitation of workers. It happened in other places in that era too. How sad that it’s still happening in our world.

  2. Have you ever read Leon Uris’s Trinity? One of the characters dies in a shirt factory fire in Belfast. It’s very powerful.

    I homeschool my six kids and often use historical fiction to teach them about history, as history is (or should be) the study of human lives (while literature is the study of human nature). I find it sad that so much of what gets taught in schools is little more than lists and names that have come to mean more than the people who actually inhabited the names.
