Lying under the ground here are the remains of 25 females who dedicated their lives to work. On September 3， 1937， they took a ferry from Cijin to the Export Processing Zone for work. The ferry sank， and the women died on their way to work. In order to commemorate the victims， the Kaohsiung City Government buried them together and established this 25 Ladies Tomb Monument as historical record of modern Cijin. In addition， it also serves as the witness of the blood and tears contributed by the local people to Cijin's economic growth. Later， the worker and women's movement flourished in Taiwan. Suggested by the Kaohsiung Association for Promotion of Women's Rights， etc， this monument was renamed as Female Laborer Memorial Park to commemorate these 25 women workers.?
