Emma Goldman is considered one of the most important figures in the history of anarchism. She was a well known lecturer, and traveled all over America and Europe speaking about anarchism and women's rights. in 1906 started her own publication Mother Earth, in which she wrote about anarchism, politics, labor issues, atheism, sexuality, and feminism. She believed in free love and access to birth control, not the most popular opinions in the early 1900s. She also served several stints in jail, and was disparaged by the press who once called her the ‘high priestess of anarchy’, which actually sounds pretty badass.
