Audio Book Summary

Margaret Sanger was an American sex educator and nurse who became one of the leading birth control activists of her time, having at one point, even served jail time for importing birth control pills, then illegal, into the United States. Woman and the New Race is her treatise on how the control of population size would not only free women from the bondage of forced motherhood, but would elevate all of society. The original fight for birth control was closely tied to the labor movement as well as the Eugenics movement, and her book provides fascinating insight to a mostly-forgotten turbulent battle recently fought in American history.

    Amazing how modern feminists point back to Margaret Sanger, who indeed was their forbearer, but don't understand that one of the main reasons why she was such a strong proponent of birth control was that she considered abortion an atrocity and a horror. This really helps me understand the progression of thought philosophically from a society in which large agricultural families in a rural setting transformed into small urban and suburban families in modern society. Very good read.
