The first-hand story of Ms. Sanger (1879 - 1966), an American birth control activist, sex educator, writer, and nurse. She popularized the term "birth control", opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, and established organizations that evolved into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. "Margaret Sanger is one of the most courageous women of our times. Her name will go down in history as one of that company of pioneers who have not been afraid to do what was to be done in spite of the prejudices and powers of their times." - Pearl S. Buck.
