Caption: Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), US birth control pioneer, activist, sex educator, and nurse. Montage of images of the life and work of Sanger, whose work as a nurse amongst the poor of New York convinced her of the need to distribute information on contraception, an activity banned by the Comstock Law of 1873. She popularized the term birth control, opened the first birth control clinic in the USA, and established the American Birth Control League and 'Birth Control Review', a monthly magazine. Sanger wrote 'Family Limitation', and her efforts contributed to several judicial cases that helped legalize contraception in the USA. She also helped to secure finance to support the development of the contraceptive pill.
