An uncommon example of radical litrature aimed at women (the title translated roughly to “the Family in the Past, the Present, and the Future,” and published in a series of works for women), here published during the exile of the Lithuanian revolutionary Vincas Mickevicius-Kapsukas (1880-1935), who briefly landed in the United States sometime in 1916 after his escape from Siberia in 1913 and sojourns in Cracow and Great Britain; once here, Kapsuas took the revolutionary Lithuanians of America well in hand, editing the publication Kova (which became communist under his leadership), before returned to Lithuania as a Bolshevik later in 1917 after the Revolution and was briefly the head of the provisional revolutionary government of Lithuania.
