The Lowell Mill Girls by Lauren Meyering

I was sitting in my history class junior year in high school, and we were learning about the role of the Lowell Mill Girls and their attempts to write and let their voices be heard despite all odds against them. I couldn’t help but think of what it would have been like to be there in that time because nowadays we have it easy with all the technology and resources that are accessible to us. We quickly moved on learning, but my mind could not stop thinking about these women in the mills. So I eventually wrote a script, and with lots of help from my family, it came to life. ~ Lauren Meyering
