Mother Jones | AFL-CIO
Mother Jones was a fearless fighter for workers’ rights— exposing disturbing truths about child labor, the poverty of working families, and the destruction of American freedoms. She was labeled "the most dangerous woman in America". Quotes: "You don't need the vote to raise hell!" "Get it straight, I'm not a humanitarian, I'm a hell-raiser."
"I asked the newspaper men why they didn't publish the facts about child labor in Pennsylvania. They said they couldn't because the mill owners had stock in the papers. 'Well, I've got stock in these little children,' said I, 'and I'll arrange a little publicity.'" - Mary Harris "Mother" Jones on why she launched the march of the mill children in 1903. How did I not know this?
