    schema:description "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."@en ;
