Today's Awesome Woman of the Day is Tillie Olsen. She was a writer, worker and union organizer who talked about the difficulties the working class, and working class women in particular, had finding time to write. I have her books Silences, and Yonnondio, which is another good reason to clear out the boxes in my basement. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tillie_Olsen
