Louise Michel was the incendiary French leader of the 1871 Paris Commune. An anarchist and irrepressible rebel, she spent much of her life on the run from police, in jail, or in danger of being locked away in mental asylums, as was the fate of so many defiant women. Known as ""The Red Virgin,"" Louise was a fascinating character from one of the greatest popular rebellions in history. Here is Michel's own story, along with commentaries by Emma Goldman, Bertolt Brecht, Sheila Rowbotham, Howard Zinn, and her contemporaries Victor Hugo and Karl Marx.
