Caption: Marie Stopes (1880-1958). Historical image of the British women's rights campaigner and palaeontologist Marie Carmichael Stopes. Stopes was a pioneer advocate of birth control and founded the UK's first family planning clinic, the Mothers' Clinic, in North London, in 1921. The clinic offered a free service to married women and also gathered scientific data about contraception. The opening of the clinic helped couples to reliably take control over their fertility for the first time. Stopes wrote many books on the subject, the most famous of which, 'Married life' (1918), was hugely controversial as it mentioned birth control for the first time. Published circa 1921.
