A Dangerous Woman: The Graphic Biography of Emma Goldman

A Dangerous Woman is an excellent biographical comic. Rudahl successfully created a detailed account of Emma Goldman’s life that is very entertaining and surprisingly accessible. I’m not usually sympathetic with radical anarchy, but Goldman is presented as an immediately likable figure, and her passion for human rights, free speech, birth control, anti-war and free love movements were translated superbly well into the comics form. This is no tired history, but rather a lively account of a woman who’s struggles matter tremendously today just as they did in her own time.
