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. Because its narrative line is so absorbing, volume 1 may be read as a powerful biography. Volume 1 covers a twenty-eight-year period from nurse's training and early socialist involvement in pre- World War I bohemian Greenwich Village to Sanger's adoption of birth control (a term she helped coin in 1914) as a fundamental tenet of women's rights. It traces the intersection of her life and work with other reformers, activists and leaders of modernity on both sides of the Atlantic, including Havelock Ellis, H.G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, Emma Goldman, Max Eastman, and Eugene Debs, as well as many leading radical artists and writers of the day. It highlights her legislative and organizational efforts, her support of the eugenics movement, and the alliances she secured with medical professionals in her crusade to make birth control legal, respectable, and accessible. This volume also includes letters from women desperately in need of fertility control who saw Sanger as their last hope. Supplemented by an introduction, brief essays providing narrative and chronological links, and substantial notes, the volume is an invaluable tool for understanding Sanger's actions and accomplishments. The documents assembled here, more than 80 percent of them letters, were culled from the Margaret Sanger Papers Microfilm Edition, edited by Esther Katz, Cathy Moran Hajo, and Peter C. Engelman. Two subsequent volumes will address later periods in her life, and an additional volume will cover her international work in the birth control struggle

What every woman should know: Birth control clinics in the United States, 1916--1940 by Cathy Moran Hajo( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early 20th century birth control movement was marked by an uneasy marriage between feminist rationales for women's control over their bodies and conservative medical control over the means of that control. The birth control clinic, first founded in the U.S. in 1916, became the embodiment of a larger movement that succeeded in legalizing and popularizing contraception. But it was more than just a symbol of women's newly articulated desire to limit their fertility, it was a functioning space, populated by lay activists, medical professionals and the working-class women who were its patients. By focusing on the birth control clinic and its place in the larger movement for contraception, this dissertation looks at how birth control theories were put into practice. Clinic activists were forced into working relationships with local doctors, social workers, politicians, religious leaders and potential patients, and their efforts were often more cautious and cooperative than national leaders who focused on educational or legislative birth control campaigns. Organized thematically, the dissertation summarizes the experience of almost 650 clinics operating in the U.S. between 1916-1939, analyzing the creation of several different clinic models and discussing chronological trends. It analyzes how activists and patients shaped the services offered at the clinics, how theories on race and eugenics were played out in practice at the clinics, how legal interpretations affected efforts to open clinics and persuade public and private institutions to support, and how the national birth control movement interacted with local clinics

How did Margaret Sanger's 1922 tour of Japan help spread the idea of birth control and inspire the formation of a Japanese birth control movement? by Peter Engelman( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Margaret Sanger's 1922 lecture tour of Japan resulted in a public discussion of birth control and population problems and provided a strong impetus for the formation of a Japanese birth control movement. The English and Japanese-language documents selected for this document project demonstrate how the Japanese government's attempt to suppress Sanger's speech created a public relations triumph for Sanger and birth control both in Japan and the United States. The documents also offer insight into Japan's evolving movement for women's rights and the West's perception of Japanese society
