Emma Goldman (1869-1940) played an integral role in further defining libertarian philosophy, but even more as an uncompromising activist against statist economics and the beginning of the warfare Empire. She laid the roots for a rational feminist movement when women were not accepted as capable of being anywhere near rational.

Known as an ‘anarcha-feminist’ to many, an advocate for liberty, reason, individualism, mutual cooperation, homesteading, atheism, free speech, female emancipation, sexual freedom, birth control, morally just insurrection, against politics, politicians, and the conscription of the working class on behalf of the oligarchs. A Russian immigrant exiled from the U.S. after three decades of life for her opposition to U.S. involvement in World War I.
