Happy Birthday, Emma Goldman!


Today is the anniversary of the birth of Emma Goldman. She was born in 1869 in Kaunas, Lithuania.

Emma Goldman was an anarchist, a midwife, a proponent of birth control, an advocate for free love, an antiwar activist, and a public speaker. She was a badass and a hellraiser. In honor of Emma, let’s all try to be a little bit more like her, at least for today.
