Synopsis: Marie Equi explores the fiercely independent life of an extraordinary woman. Born of Italian-Irish parents in 1872, Marie Equi endured childhood labor in a gritty Massachusetts textile mill before fleeing to an Oregon homestead with her first longtime woman companion, who described her as impulsive, earnest, and kind-hearted. These traits, along with courage, stubborn resolve, and a passion for justice, propelled Equi through an unparalleled life journey.  

Equi self-studied her way into a San Francisco medical school and then obtained her license in Portland to become one of the first practicing woman physicians in the Pacific Northwest. From Pendleton, Portland, Seattle and beyond to Boston and San Francisco, she leveraged her professional status to fight for woman suffrage, labor rights, and reproductive freedom. She mounted soapboxes, fought with police, and spent a night in jail with birth control advocate Margaret Sanger. Equi marched so often with unemployed men that the media referred to them as her army. She battled for economic justice at every turn and protested the U.S. entry into World War I, leading to a conviction for sedition and a three-year sentence in San Quentin. Breaking boundaries in all facets of life, she became the first well-known lesbian in Oregon, and her same-sex affairs figured prominently in two cases taken to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Marie Equi is a finely written, rigorously researched account of a woman of consequence, who one fellow-activist considered "the most interesting woman that ever lived in this state, certainly the most fascinating, colorful, and flamboyant." This much anticipated biography will engage anyone interested in Pacific Northwest history, women's studies, the history of lesbian and gay rights, and the personal demands of political activism. It is the inspiring story of a singular woman who was not afraid to take risks, who refused to compromise her principles in the face of enormous opposition and adversity, and who paid a steep personal price for living by her convictions.

From the Author: Marie Equi's direct involvement with the political turmoil and social transformation in America a century ago reflects how one woman lived her life on the edge of public opprobrium. She risked being one of the most feared and hated women in the Pacific Northwest -- almost an outcast for her radicalism and lesbianism -- to remain true to her belief in social and and economic justice. She earned her reputation as a remarkable woman during exceptional times. How she engaged the struggles of her day with courage and compassion makes Equi's life story important to anyone interested in the issues then and concerned about similar injustice today. My research into Equi's life -- the discovery of long-unknown sources -- propelled me forward as I understood her fierce independence and unrelenting courage in the face of adversity.
