Description

This compelling historical novel spans the early and very formative years of feminist and women's health activist Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, as she struggles to find her way amidst the harsh realities of poverty. Margaret was determined to get out. She didn't want to clean the dirty dishes and soiled diapers that piled up day in and day out in her large family's small home. She didn't want to disappoint her ailing mother, who cared tirelessly for an ever-growing number of children despite her incessant cough. And Margaret certainly didn't want to be labeled a girl of "promise," destined to become either a teacher or a mother--which seemed to be a woman's only options. As a feisty and opinionated young woman, Margaret Higgins Sanger witnessed and experienced incredible hardships, which led to her groundbreaking work as an advocate for women's rights and the founder of Planned Parenthood. This fiery novel of Margaret's early life paints the portrait of a young woman with the passion and courage to change the world.
