Margaret Sanger (died 1966 September 6 (age 83)) was a sex reformer, birth-control advocate, antiauthoritian, socialist.
An active worker for the Socialist party, her friends included radicals of all shades — John Reed, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Bill Haywood, Emma Goldman, Alexander Berkman, and Jessie Ashley.
Her ideas on "family limitation" were inspired by her friend Emma Goldman and Voltairine de Cleyre.
The phrase "birth control" first appeared in 1914 in her magazine, "Woman Rebel", which bore the slogan "No Gods; No Masters!" on its masthead.
In America, famed land of "free speech," Sanger, Goldman, Reitman and other advocates of reproductive rights were hounded by cops and the judicial system. In England Guy Aldred and his partner Rose Witcop published a popular edition of Sangerʼs Family Limitation and were prosecuted for obscenity.
Margaret Sanger participated in the Patterson Textile Strike of 1913 which she wrote about in Hippolyte Havelʼs "Revolutionary Almanac." She was also a contributor to Havelʼs "Revolt", Emma Goldmanʼs "Mother Earth", Alexander Berkmanʼs "The Blast" and "The Modern School" magazine.
