Goldman, Emma

   US anarchist. Emma Goldman came to the United States from Russia as a girl of sixteen. She devoted her life to spreading the anarchist creed in lectures and print and published a journal, Mother Earth (1906–18). The state, the church and the capitalist system were denounced by her as trampling on individual freedom. She also openly advocated birth control.
   In World War I she was imprisoned for campaigning against the draft and in 1919 deported to Russia. Two years later she fled to Paris, disillusioned with the Soviet system. Her two-volume autobiography, Living My Life, was published in 1931.
