a.k.a. Rose Harriet Pastor Stokes

Author Code: ARPS

Born: Jul. 18, 1879 - Augustava Suvolk, Russia

Died: Jun. 20, 1933 - Frankfurt, Germany

After living in England for nine years, Rose's family emigrated to American in 1891 when she was twelve. She began working in a Cleveland cigar factory in 1892 and spent the next eleven years as a cigar maker and developing her experience of the working class. After an essay was accepted by the Jewish Daily News, she was convinced that she should write and subsequently submitted many articles to the paper. In 1903, she decided to move to New York and took a job as a columnist with the Jewish Daily News, a Yiddish periodical that also had an English language section. In 1905, she married J.G. Phelps Stokes, a socialist businessman and together they joined the American Socialist Party. Rose became active in socialist causes, supporting the garment workers strike in 1909 and the hotel and restaurant workers strike of 1912. She was a prolific writer and contributed articles to many periodicals including The Century Magazine and The Masses. In 1917, she became involved in the struggle to keep America out of the World War. She was later arrested and charged with violating the Espionage Act and sentenced to ten years in prison. She served two years before being freed following a successful appeal. She left the Socialist Party in 1919 when they opposed the Russian Revolution and she then helped to found the American Communist Party. Her husband divorced her in 1925 when he could no longer support her political views. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1930. In 1933, she traveled to Germany for specialist treatment, but died following an operation. Stokes was a leading proponent of birth control and woman's rights. Her works consist primarily of articles, pamphlets and some poetry.
