Eleanor Marx was an agitator, an organiser and a writer. At a time of extraordinary upheaval, she was at the heart of world-changing movements. She was involved in the street movements against unemployment, for Irish independence and for free speech. She organised support for refugees fleeing France after the crushing of the Paris Commune and galvanised support for the new unionism movement.
A passionate writer and translator, she developed new and important insights on questions of sexual equality and socialism.
Eleanor Marx was much more than just the daughter of Karl Marx. She was a remarkable and revolutionary woman. This addition to the popular Rebel's Guide series places her back alongside other revolutionary leaders, where she belongs.
