(1853 - 1942) ~ IWW Founder, Anarchist Activist, and Labor Organizer : In addition to defending the rights of African-Americans, Lucy spoke out against the repressed status of women in nineteenth century America. Wanting to challenge the notion that women could not be revolutionary, she took a very active, and often militant, role in the labor movement... (From : IWW.org.)
• "I say to the wage class: Think clearly and act quickly, or you are lost. Strike not for a few cents more an hour, because the price of living will be raised faster still, but strike for all you earn, be content with nothing less." (From : "The Principles of Anarchism," by Lucy E. Parsons.)
• "...in freedom to possess and utilize soil lie social happiness and progress and the death of rent." (From : "The Principles of Anarchism," by Lucy E. Parsons.)

Dear Comrade Tom Mooney: I received your most welcome letter some days ago and would have replied sooner but was not well.

Regarding the data of the trial, I sent about all I had on hand to universities.

I mailed you a copy of The Life of Albert R. Parsons. It contains much valuable information which you wished. I am sending under another cover copies of the Alarm that Parsons published. In your lonely prison cell, it will take you back to other days of our movement.

Well, dear Comrade, I have been very active in your cause, to liberate you; have spoken in many meetings both here and in the east. I am not discouraged in the belief that justice will be done you, and that I can clasp your hand a free comrade—vindicated!

My vision is becoming so dim that it is difficult for me to write legibly any more.

I am yours fraternally,

Lucy E. Parsons
