Margaret Sanger – Health Awareness month continues

Posted on

sangerAs we focus on health issues this month, it is an opportune time to remember Margaret Sanger, a pioneer of her time for her work relating to woman’s rights.

In particular, she focused on the issues related to sexual health.  She was the subject of much criticism as she spoke out on subjects like birth control and abortion, as the world was not yet prepared to discuss such ‘delicate matters’.

As a nurse, her efforts for social reform saw her establish the first birth control clinic in the United States. Where did her motivation come from?  Explore why she tirelessly continue to crusade, to provide women and girls with the information they needed to protect themselves.

Her story reflects the courage it takes to fight for what you believe to be right.
