Mother Earth
New York: Emma Goldman, 1906-1917
Russian immigrant and anarchist Emma Goldman dedicated her life to combatting inequality, repression and the exploitation of workers. She believed in direct action to bring about revolutionary change. Goldman published the journal Mother Earth and served as its editor in 1906. Alexander Berkman assumed editorial duties from 1907 to 1915. Mother Earth served as an outlet for Goldman’s own and her colleagues’ writings on issues deeply connected to the anarchist cause such as education, the labor movement, women’s rights and birth control.
