Abstract

In 1885, Emma Goldman (1869-1940) emigrated to America, from Lithuania, to live with her sister near New York. Her anarchist views were cemented by reading Russian revolutionary, Peter Kropotkin, her experience of dire working conditions as a seamstress, and the Haymarket Riot in Chicago in 1886. Goldman was a great orator and travelled the United States lecturing on her beliefs. She was an anti-capitalist, an atheist, a feminist, and she thought violence carried out in the name of fighting for her chosen ideologies was just a means to an end. Goldman spent time in jail for her troubles, and finally in 1919, she was deported from America. J. Edgar Hoover called her one of the ‘most dangerous anarchists’ in the country. She spent her whole life agitating for change.
