A history of the birth control movement in America by Peter Engelman ( Book )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work tells the story of a group of reformers dedicated to making contraception legal, accessible, and acceptable. It details how Margaret Sanger's campaign beginning in 1914 to challenge anti obscenity laws criminalizing the distribution of contraceptive information grew into one of the most far reaching social reform movements in American history. The book opens with a discussion of the history of birth control methods and the criminalization of contraception and abortion in the 19th century. The women-led birth control movement defied the law to advocate one of the most controversial ideas in modern times: that women should have control over if and when to have children. The movement overcame government suppression and vigorous religious and moral opposition to insure that contraception became a necessary component of modern healthcare. The core of the book is a narrative of the campaign in the 20th century, recalling the arrests and indictments, banned publications, imprisonments, confiscations, clinic raids, mass meetings, and courtroom dramas that publicized the cause across the nation. Attention is paid to the movement's thorny alliances with medicine and eugenics and especially to its success in precipitating a profound shift in sexual attitudes that turned the use of contraception into an acceptable social practice. Finally, the birth control movement is linked to court won privacy protections and the present day movement for reproductive rights
The selected papers of Margaret Sanger by Margaret Sanger ( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: The birth control crusader, feminist, and reformer Margaret Sanger was one of the most controversial and compelling figures in the twentieth century. This first volume of The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger documents the critical phases and influences of an American feminist icon and offers rare glimpses into her working-class childhood, burgeoning feminism, spiritual and scientific interests, sexual explorations, and diverse roles as wife, mother, nurse, journalist, radical socialist, and activist. These letters and other writings, including diaries, journals, articles, and speeches, most of which have never before been published, have been selected and assembled with an eye to telling the story of a remarkable life, punctuated by arrests and imprisonments, exile, love affairs, and a momentous personal loss--a life consumed with the quest for women's sexual liberation
