One evening, as she was approaching her 100th year, Mary Harris "Mother" Jones was introduced to a college convocation as "a great humanitarian". When she took the podium she hollered "I'm not a humanitarian, I'm a hell raiser."

Mother Jones was one of the most effective organizers of her time. She organized anti-child labor marches to Washington, mine workers' unions, prison reform groups and protests against the Spanish-American war.

Mother Jones magazine was created in 1976, in the spirit of Mary Harris Jones. An award winning magazine of investigative journalism, Mother Jones is well known for its political reporting and features on such issues as breast cancer, as well as interviews with feminists such Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan.
