Emma Goldman “Red Emma” (June 27, 1869 – May 14, 1940) was an anarchist political activist and writer. She played a pivotal role in the development of anarchist political philosophy in North America and Europe in the first half of the 20th century.
Amsterdam Alternative is an independent, bi-monthly newspaper that deals with social, political, environmental, and creative topics that concern our city. For the May-June 2019 issue, I wrote an article about Emma Goldman and her life, accompanied with an illustration.
“La voz de le mujer. Ni Dios, ni patrón, ni marido.” (The Woman’s Voice. No god, No master, no husband.) Virginia Bolten (1870–1960) was an Argentine journalist as well as an anarchist and feminist activist of German descent. A gifted orator, she is considered a pioneer in the struggle for women’s rights in Argentina.
Bolten is responsible for the publication of a newspaper called La Voz de la Mujer.
