Margaret Sanger: Radiant Rebel 1916
Radiant Rebel 1916
Forty-minute Solo Play
From the Writings of Margaret Sanger
In an after-dinner speech, Margaret Sanger recounts the events of her life that galvanized her to devote her life to giving women their choice and their power. Seeing endless numbers of poverty-stricken women subjected to destructive pregnancies drove the young Margaret Sanger to defy the brutal Comstock laws. Her defiance cost her home and family, but her vision became the basis of Planned Parenthood, the international organization that has counseled four generations of women on birth control.
