Pantheon: Mary Harris Jones, "Grandmother of All Agitators"

Put aside your party line, your ideology and anything else you use to avoid thinking on your own. School teacher, seamstress, businesswoman, community organizer, Chicago girl and Ireland-born, Mary Harris "Mother Jones" (1837-1930) had big ones. What a resume, most of it from after she turned 50.

Denounced on the U.S. Senate floor as the "grandmother of all agitators."
