Luisa Capetillo Perone was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Her father was Spanish and her mother French. She was known as a feminist, labor leader, writer, and anarchist. Capetillo worked as a journalist for the newspaper Unión Obrera; she was a promoter of free love, raised three children, and lived in New York City and Tampa before being deported for her political views. She lived in Havana, Cuba, but was arrested there for wearing men's clothing in public.

In Puerto Rico she worked to implement a minimum wage law, then returned to New York and operated a vegetarian restaurant and guest house that became a political center for the working class.
