Description

This study examines the early writing and relationships of activist Margaret Sanger by focusing on the feminist aspect of the birth control movement pertaining to sexual autonomy for women. Sanger's distinctive philosophy separated her early advocacy for birth control from other women's movements. This work contributes to the existing body of literature on Sanger by bringing to the forefront both the American and transatlantic social and philosophical influences present in the birth control and feminist debate.
