The Women's Trade Union League (WTUL) (1903-1950) was an American organization, with chapters in various states, formed to support the efforts of women to organize labor unions and to eliminate sweatshop conditions. The WTUL played an important role in strikes in American cities that led to the establishment of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union and Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, and campaigned for women's suffrage among both male and female workers. It was formed and named after the British organization of the same name.
