Rebel Cinderella

ebook

The astonishing but forgotten story of an immigrant sweatshop worker who became one of the most charismatic radical leaders of her time
Rose Pastor arrived in New York City in 1903, a Jewish refugee from Russia. Two years later, she swept headlines when she married James Graham Phelps Stokes, scion of New York high society. Together, this unusual couple moved among the liveliest group of Socialist activists and dreamers this country has ever seen, including Emma Goldman, Eugene Debs, Margaret Sanger, and W.E.B. Du Bois. Rose stirred audiences to tears, led labor strikes, and distributed birth control information alongside the country's earliest feminists. President Woodrow Wilson called her "one of the dangerous influences of the country." Rebel Cinderella unearths the rich, overlooked life of a social justice campaigner truly ahead of her time.
