Margaret Sanger: A Life of Passion, Jean H. Baker (#) – BookMarks
She is currently a professor of history at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. The strength of Baker's book is in her ability to contextualize Sanger within her own time, which may prompt even her harshest critics to reassess her legacy. Baker makes it clear that Sanger believed, above all else, that every woman should have the right to control all aspects of her reproductive life through the diligent use of birth control.
This unbiased account underscores the ferocity of the fighter and the necessity of the fight. A wealth of information about the birth-control movement and the dedicated woman who was long at the center of it. For too long, the women's movement has paid too little tribute to brave but difficult Margaret Sanger.
Baker has finally, firmly, and unforgettably placed her within the pantheon of feminist history. Now, finally, she has the biography she deserves. Baker has restored Margaret Sanger to history and history to Margaret Sanger.

A dry, detailed but engaging tale of a fascinating woman whose passion, drive and determination almost single-handedly led to the liberation of women from the burdens, disease, death and poverty of endless childbirth and large families. Born in Corning, New York, the sixth of eleven children to Irish immigrants, she early demonstrated her independence and drive in seeking education and trained as a nurse.
Marrying a crypto-Jew, William Sanger, at 21, she bore three children and was a strict Socialist before finding her life and work at the age of Influenced by Mabel Dodge and Emma Goldman in Greenwich Village but interrupted by a decade of child rearing in Hastings-on-Hudson, she returned to New York City to begin decades of trying to provide women with control over their own bodies as well as address overpopulation.
She endured arrest and harassment for her clinics and education efforts due to the Comstock Law and traveled extensively abroad for international conferences, lectures, and fund-raising.
