Product description


"Coates' strongest and most sustained interpretive point makes a thought-provoking contribution to women's history and contemporary debates about gender equality. She asserts that Sanger deserves to be classified as a committed feminist because - despite forays into now discredited rationales for birth control such as eugenics - Sanger never jettisoned her principle that sexual fulfillment was a women's right." - Patricia Kelleher, Ph.D. Associate Professor of History Kutztown University "Coates analysis of the background to Margaret Sanger's beliefs and writings is fascinating and well grounded in a careful review of original sources as well as in a thorough critique of existing biographical accounts of Sanger's life and work." - Judith N. Lasker, Ph.D. NEH Distinguished Professor Department of Sociology and Anthropology Lehigh University"
