Mary Harris Mother Jones

The Most Dangerous Woman In America

On July 24, 1902, Mary Harris Jones appeared in the federal court at Parkersburg, WV, arrested for ignoring an injunction banning meetings by striking miners. District Attorney Reese Blizzard pointed to her and announced, There sits the most dangerous woman in America. She comes into a state where peace and prosperity reign. She crooks her finger - twenty thousand contented men lay down their tools and walk out. Mother Jones died on November 30, 1930, having devoted the last half of her long and eventful life to struggles for justice. Miners were her particular cause, but she also worked to stop child labor and helped found the Wobblies (Industrial Workers of the World).
