Marie Equi: Radical Politics and Outlaw Passions

$24.95

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.
