The Most Dangerous Woman in America
On our Stoop, Synagogue, Soapbox walking tour, we stroll the local streets while exploring the intersection of politics, ideology and religion on the Lower East Side of 100 years ago. One of the more(in)famous characters we meet along the way is Emma Goldman– feminist, anarchist, rabble rouser and proponent of free love. A fascinating historical figure, Goldman’s life was dedicated to changing the status-quo of the world in which she found herself: “I want freedom, the right to self-expression, everybody’s right to beautiful, radiant things.”
