AIR DATE: December 13, 2011

Nevadans often think of themselves as embodying traditional American values. They say that we're a conservative state compared to, say, California or New York. A century ago, however, a Chicago-based, female anarchist came to the state to praise our very progressive divorce laws. Those liberal laws  conclusively proved, she said, that marriage was a failure as an institution.
 
No wonder that FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover dubbed her "the most dangerous woman in America."
 
Tune in to 88.9 KNPR at 9 am Monday to hear more about this Nevada crusader, however non-traditional.
 
GUEST
Guy Rocha, historian and former Nevada State Archivist
