The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger, Vol. 3: the Politics of planned Parenthood
The Politics of Planned Parenthood,1939-1966, Vol. 3 of The Selected Papers of Margaret Sanger, edited by Ether Katz with Cathy Moran Hajo and Peter Engelman, has been published by Illinois University Press. This volume tells the story of Sanger's collaboration with the philanthropist Katharine Dexter McCormick and their masterful direction of scientists, physicians, and birth control bureaucrats toward the production of the first contraceptive pill--the catalyst for the sexual revolution.
It also chronicles Sanger's attempt to guide the American birth control movement during World War II and her controversial efforts to expand birth control services to African Americans in the rural South and to incorporate contraceptive health care into state and federal public health programs.
