Lolita Lebron (1919-2010) was an anti-imperialist, feminist, and socialist who advocated for an independent Puerto Rico. In 1954 she entered the United States House of Representatives with other members of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party and opened fire with semi-automatic handguns after yelling, ”¡Viva Puerto Rico Libre!” Five lawmakers were injured in the attack although Lebron herself only fired shots at the ceiling. From prison she became a symbol of hope and strength for many young revolutionaries, and is often cited as an influence of feminist militants from the 1960s and beyond.
