Luisa Capetillo (October 28, 1879 – October 10, 1922) was one of Puerto Rico’s most famous labor organizers. She was also a writer and an anarchist who fought for workers and women’s rights. She insisted that all women should have the same right to vote as men and is considered to be one of Puerto Rico’s first suffragists. In 1919, she challenged the mainstream society by becoming the first woman in Puerto Rico to wear pants in public. She was arrested for this when she traveled to Cuba but charges were dropped. Other of her controversial ideas was “free love.” Luisa clearly outlined in her essays the belief that women should have the right to love whomever they please without obstruction, including marriage.
