Frances Wright was a pioneer in the fight for women's reproductive rights in late-19th century America. She received little support at the time, but laid the foundation for those who followed.

Margaret Sanger championed the universal availability of contraception. Betty Friedan founded the National Organization for Women (NOW).

This book contains eleven biographies of women who fought for women's reproductive rights and their rights to education about sexuality. Each made a significant contribution to women's emancipation from repressive sexual attitudes and laws.

About the Author:

The late Moira Davison Reynolds, a retired biochemist, wrote about women who made significant contributions to United States culture, including several books about activists, artists, authors and scientists. She lived in Marquette, Michigan.

From Booklist:

Reynolds profiles 11 spearheads of the movement for reproductive rights and sexual education, beginning with Fanny Wright, a Scot who advocated women's equal rights, free love, and birth control in the Victorian era. Other nineteenth-century figures are Annie Besant, tried in Britain in 1877 for immorality for her part in reprinting an old birth control pamphlet, and Emma Goldman, also arrested because of her stand on birth control. There's American Margaret Sanger, who sought to make contraception available to all, and English paleobotanist Marie Stopes, who focused on sex education, as did American Mary Denett, convicted for using the mails to distribute educational material about reproduction. Contemporaries include physician Mary Calderone, whose text on contraceptive practices was published the same year (1964) she founded the Sex Information and Education Council of the U.S.; Katharine McCormick, who helped finance the development of oral contraception; and Sarah Waddington, the young attorney who successfully argued Roe v. Wade. Whitney Scott
