Emma Goldman: A Study in Female Agitation.
Berry, Elizabeth
The role of the agitator in society and the special characteristics of women agitators--in particular, Emma Goldman, an American anarchist from the early twentieth century--are discussed in this paper. Specific examples of the rhetoric used by Emma Goldman in her speeches (supporting anarchism, against women's suffrage, against abortion control, and for birth control) and comments about her by her contemporaries are used to illustrate her style and explain her effect.
