"I may be arrested, I may be tried and thrown in jail," anarchist Emma Goldman declared in 1916 after being locked up for lecturing on birth control, "but I never will be silent." More than half a century after she died in exile, "Red Emma"--an audacious orator once branded the most dangerous woman in the United States by J. Edgar Hoover--speaks today to a nation grown suspicious of government.

You would have thought, "Anywhere but UC Berkeley." Sure, times are such in America that your patriotism can be called into question for raising your hand to contest war policy or the erosion of constitutional rights. But for the last half century, Berkeley has existed entirely outside the norm, priding itself on challenging everything from haircuts to capitalism. The times, they are a changin'. Now, in the home of the antiwar and free-speech movements, we have a scrum over war and free speech.

Regarding Mary Daly, the "radical feminist" professor at Boston College who refuses to admit men to her courses (Feb. 26): Her excuse for this discriminatory conduct is "her belief that women tend to defer to a man whenever one is present." Does Daly have any idea how demeaning it is to women for her to have made that statement? She is saying that the women who take her course are so stupid and conditioned that simply having a man in the room will make them in some way subservient?

In February 1916, the doughty and notorious anarchist Emma Goldman was accused of having distributed literature on birth control at a public meeting in New York, a criminal offense in those dark times. She was duly summoned to trial. And in her monthly magazine, Mother Earth, in the April 1916 issue, she took aim at her persecutors.

". . . as long as nobody fears women, we'll stay powerless and isolated. You can't have a revolution without fear. So I would tell women to strike fear, create fear. Be as threatening, big, looming, loud-mouthed, unfeminine as you can possibly dig down into your gut to be. Above all else, do not be ladylike. That's from Emma Goldman." --Roseanne Arnold, in US magazine.

Chanting "this is not Wichita," hundreds of abortion rights advocates formed a barrier around an abortion clinic Saturday to defy protests by members of Operation Rescue. Although protesters had promised a massive rally against the city's five clinics that offer abortions, only 75 Operation Rescue supporters showed up at the Emma Goldman Clinic for Women, authorities said. About 12 other people who picketed the Planned Parenthood clinic were met by about two dozen abortion rights demonstrators.

Kirsten Brydum pedaled away from the Howlin' Wolf club into the darkness of another American city that she didn't know very well. It was 1:30 a.m. She rode a black cruiser bicycle with a basket on the back, borrowed from friends of friends. In nearly every city she had visited on her 2-month-road trip, it seemed someone was willing to lend her an old bike. The Rebirth Brass Band was on the bill that night. Brydum, 25, had danced for a while outside the club in her flip-flops.

Sixty-three years after her death, outspoken anarchist Emma Goldman struck a blow for freedom of speech Tuesday at UC Berkeley. A campus spat erupted this week over the latest annual fund-raising letter for the Emma Goldman Papers Project at UC Berkeley, a research and publication effort launched in 1980. University officials had refused to send out the letter's initial draft, which contained quotations by Goldman supporting free speech and opposing war.
