When she died in Toronto, after having a stroke while playing cards, her last words were "Goddamn it, why did you lead that?" (Falk 315).

Until the end, she was strong, feisty and a true role model for all humans who strongly believe in and want to promote a cause. In Goldman's biography, Falk clearly recognizes that Goldman is no saint or a Gandhi, and will never be remembered as such. However, "Emma Goldman provided an example for all women in the affirmation of her sexuality and her internal struggle with gender norms; she provided an example for all human beings in her total disrespect for the evil of institutions.
She advocated freedom, which is admirable. But she lived freely in a world enslaved, which is heroic."
