posed as factory worker

"No. 1075 packs chocolates"
Cornelia Stratton Parker
Parker's 1921 six-part series for Harper's, later collected into a book published by Harper & Brothers, examining conditions for the working woman by posing herself in a variety of low-wage jobs, a ruse repeated numerous times since the 1880s by a number of female journalists, among them, Nell Nelson, the Van Vorst sisters-in-law, and Emmeline Pendennis.
