Caption: Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), American birth control pioneer. When working as a nurse amongst disadvantaged women in New York, Sanger (right) was angered by the suffering and poor health brought about by unplanned pregnancies. She subsequently devoted her life to promoting and distributing contraceptives, illegal practices at the time. She was arrested for founding the first birth control clinic in the US in 1916, but continued her campaign upon her release. She wrote prolifically throughout her life. This picture is from the Bain News Service, one of America's oldest news picture agencies, which holds images dating from between the 1890s and 1930s.
