Monday, January 4, 2016: Marie Equi: Radical Politics & Outlaw Passions

Marie Equi was a doctor, an open lesbian, an abortion provider, a suffragist and an outspoken labor activist in early twentieth century Oregon.  She was called "one of the most dangerous anarchists" in the country and went to prison for her opposition to World War I.

Why is Equi so much less known than her friends and comrades Margaret Sanger and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn?  Homophobia, suggests Michael Helquist, whose new book is Marie Equi: Radical Politics and Outlaw Passions. Michael will be reading from his book on Sunday, January 10 at 11:30 AM at A Book Talk, St. Aidens Episcopal Church, 101 Gold Mine Drive, SF.

  1. The places I saw here are really wonderful, celebrating a special event like this with the beauty of nature is really cool. When you are in Los Angeles event venues, there's nothing you can do than to be happy. I really liked it here.
