Eileen Taliman Sufrin became active in socialist politics in the lsquo;30s. Her career in the trade union movement began in 1940. She helped to organize bank clerks, munition plant workers, office staff in steel mills, and led the long, spectacular, but unsuccessful, drive to unionize Eaton employees in Toronto. This is her memoir of that extraordinary chapter in retail unionism and Canadian labour history. In October 1979 she was one of seven women awarded the Governor-Generalrsquo;s medal, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the ldquo;Persons Case.rdquo;
