    Margaret Sanger was arguably one of, if not THE, most influential women of the twentieth century. Birth control
    and family planning would never be the same, due to her strong force of personality and calculated efforts to
    raise awareness of the issue of birth control. She got America: 1) to talk about it openly for the first time, and
    2) agree that spacing children within marriage was actually a good idea. Then she built coalitions to support
    clinics, to form national frameworks of supporters, then international networks, AND served as matchmaker/fairy
    godmother to the researchers who developed The Pill, after she introduced an interested sponsor with deep

    What I liked about this book is that Sanger's warmth, vibrancy comes through, but also, the author herself does
    not seem 100% sold on "Saint Margaret." Her flaws and strengths are clearly depicted, along with a good feel
    for the times when she was born, when she was a teen, and each succeeding social transition. America - and
    the world was changing rapidly, from rural, agricultural nations to cities with automobiles and telephones.
    Women got to vote!

    This is an engaging look both at how one woman changed the world, but also a fascinating look at the history of
    20th century America.
