The Current Concerns Of Emma Goldman

"I see neither physical, psychological, nor mental reasons why woman should not have the equal right to vote with man. But that cannot possibly blind me to the absurd notion that woman will accomplish that wherein man has failed... Are we to assume that the poison already inherent in politics will be decreased, if women were to enter the political arena?"-Emma Goldman

Whatever our politics, most of us can still find validation or inspiration in the works of Paine or Burke, Mill or Marx. So when invited to write in praise of my own ideological idol, the pioneering anarchist and feminist Emma Goldman, I was not surprised to find her words still rang true and clear.- Emma Goldman: a thoroughly modern anarchist
