Rebel Cinderella

Rose Pastor arrived in New York City in 1903, a Jewish refugee from Russia who had worked in cigar factories since the age of eleven. Two years later, she captured headlines across the globe when she married James Graham Phelps Stokes, scion of one of the legendary 400 families of New York high society. Adam Hochschild discusses the rich, overlooked life of a social justice campaigner who was truly ahead of her time.
