“No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.”
From the documentary “Anarchism in America” (1983) by Pacific Street Films.
Fearless advocate in support of free speech, birth control, women’s rights and labor. She spoke out against government and big business, but her outspoken opposition to war and World War I, along with her protest against the draft, led to the deportation of this so-called “most dangerous anarchist in America.” She was ordered back to her native Russia in 1919, and returned just once to the United States before her death in Toronto in 1940.
