Marie Equi: Radical Politics and Outlaw Passions


By Michael Helquist, acclaimed journalist, historian, and activist. 

Marie Equi, the first full length biography of this remarkable woman, explores the fiercely independent life of an extraordinary woman. Marie Equi was a physician for the working class, a lesbian, and a fiercely independent activist unafraid to take risks or stand by her principles. Born of Italian-Irish parents in 1872, Marie Equi endured childhood labor in a gritty Massachusetts textile mill before fleeing to an Oregon homestead with her first longtime woman companion, who described her as impulsive, earnest, and kind-hearted. These traits, along with courage, stubborn resolve, and a passion for justice, propelled Equi through an unparalleled life journey.
