Margaret Sanger


American nurse and feminine activist who was jailed for advocating birth control. She wrote a series on sex education in 1913, began to crusade for birth control, and ended up jailed for her activist activities. She founded America's first contraceptive clinic in Brooklyn in 1916. Sanger was one of 11 children of an improvident Irish stone cutter; the family struggled to make ends meet. She became a nurse and married Bill Sanger in 1900. They had three kids (one died). They moved to Greenwich Village in 1910. There she fell in with the radicals, even in bed with some, which doomed her marriage. Her first marriage ended in divorce, and she remarried in 1922 to a millionaire businessman. She was a free-spirited, eccentric feminist who passionately pursued sexual freedom. A somewhat contradictory personality and incurable romantic, she adored her children yet abandoned them. Her biography was written by Ellen Chester, published in 1992 by Simon & Schuster.

Sanger died 9 June 1966 in Tucson, Arizona.
