Marx, Eleanor


Marx, Eleanor
(1855–1898)
   The youngest of Karl Marx’s three daughters who survived to adulthood, Eleanor Marx was actively involved in the socialist movement throughout her life. She was involved in the Socialist Democratic Federation, Socialist League, Independent Labour Party, and Second International, but was especially active working for militant trade unions in the late 1880s and 1890s, particularly as a committee member for the Gasworkers’ Union and as an activist helping to mobilize women strikers. She had an unhappy personal life, and eventually committed suicide by taking prussic acid aided by her husband Edward Bibbins Aveling.
