Ellen Gavin on Elizabeth Gurley Flynn
Activist/Writer Ellen Gavin speaks passionately about Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, a prodigious, outspoken woman who led one of the most successful strikes in U.S. history. Although she was imprisoned numerous times it never stopped her from fighting for the fair treatment of immigrants, factory workers, African Americans, and other oppressed people. Take a little inspiration from this kick-ass woman.
