Emma Goldman was an anarchist, free-speech advocate, and radical feminist. She pissed off governments, did time, juggled multiple lovers, and travelled the world in search of excitement (and incitement). She saw and did it all—and now, she’s here to give her 21st century sisters advice!

Emma on Pushy Parents, Domestic Chores, and the Fall of Capitalism

Dear Emma,

I am a student on a college campus and I too fight for women's issues (i.e., fighting how student debt impacts women more than men, sexual assault, and Title IX, and, most recently, getting our campus to supply Plan B to students in an on-campus market that is open 24/7). What advice do you have to make my work more effective?

Dear Emma,
Recently, I stayed over at my S.O.'s apartment and needed to borrow their toothbrush. They looked horrified that I would suggest such a thing and said it felt unhygienic. For me, it feels like a non-issue. It has led to a few fights so I have to ask: is it okay to expect a S.O. to be willing to share their toothbrush?
