    I have recently watched a movie on her!… Such a brave lady and so important as her struggle led us to many conquers with regard to Labor Laws!.
    Thanks for sharing. All the best to you, Aquileana 😀

      Thanks for visiting and for your comment. Rosa Parks’ connection to labor laws wasn’t on my radar!

        You are right… My mistake… I was thinking in those women machinists at the Ford factory in Dagenham went on strike over equal pay. (1968)… And I linked to it!… The figure I meant to make reference to was Rita O’Grady, but that was in UK not US! Sorry for the distraction … 😛 Aquileana~
