Jean Baker recounts the life of birth control advocate Margaret Sanger (1879-1966). Ms. Sanger, schooled as a nurse, became a vocal proponent of educating women on the concepts of contraception after watching a woman die of a self-induced abortion in 1912. Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, a predecessor to Planned Parenthood. Jean Baker read from her book before being interviewed by Cristina Page and responding to questions from members of the audience at the Tenement Museum in New York City. close
