    Can't Scare Me: The Story of Mother Jones

    The Most Dangerous Woman in America...

    Less than a hundred years ago, two million American children worked countless hours for as little 10 cents a day. Their parents worked in coalmines and textile mills with no job security, few protections, and no legal right to organize.

    One of the principal catalysts for change was an Irish-American firebrand named Mary Harris “Mother” Jones. For 50 years, Mother Jones worked tirelessly educating, agitating, and organizing for the rights of workers and their families. She organized men in the mines and steel mills, railway workers, women in the breweries, and children in the cotton mills. She became the face of the labor movement, traveling across America. Mother Jones was called the Miners’ Angel, the protector of children, and at one point was denounced in the U.S. Senate as the most dangerous woman in America.

    In Can’t Scare Me: The Story of Mother Jones, Mother Jones is brought to life by Obie Award winner Kaiulani Lee. Ms. Lee’s play is drawn from historical documents including Mother Jones’ autobiography, her letters, speeches, interviews and transcripts.
