Thanks so much for posting this. I love learning about labor history, especially when women are involved. Very inspiring, and glad to find out about Desai! =D

Too right - we need a post about Ms Desai or women like her every day.

I have no idea how I missed the double. Well, besides the fact I always seem to.
