Anarchist
    (June 27, 1869-May 14, 1940)
    Influential anarchist and social reformer
    Wrote 'Anarchism and Other Essays,' 'My Disillusionment in Russia,' 'My Further Disillusionment in Russia' and 'Living My Life'
    She was an ultra-leftist anarchist and communist activist.
    She lived with a man who tried to kill industrialist Henry Clay Frick.
    She was an idol of Leon Czolgosz, the man who assassinated President McKinley.
    She was arrested following McKinley's death, but couldn't be linked to Czolgosz.
    She was arrested during a workers' rights demonstration after saying: 'If they do not give you work or bread, take bread.'
    J. Edgar Hoover called her 'one of the most dangerous anarchists in America.'
    After numerous run-ins with the law, she was deported to Russia.
    Her unpopular ideas made her the target of frequent harassment and censorship.
    She was a lifelong advocate of civil rights, fair working conditions, and peace.
    She was imprisoned for distributing contraceptive and birth control pamphlets.
    An antiwar activist, she spoke against the draft during World War I (predictably, she was arrested again).
    She became so disgusted at Russian communism that she wrote two books attacking the Bolsheviks.
    She worked against Francisco Franco during the Spanish Civil War.
    Her grave reads: 'Liberty will not descend to a people; a people must raise themselves to Liberty.'
