Miriam Reed is an actress and writer of one-woman performances. Her one-woman performances include Louisa May Alcott: Living Little Women, Talking Abortion, Oscar Wilde's Women, and most importantly, Margaret Sanger: Radiant Rebel.From Booklist:
Sanger became committed to sex education and birth control (a term she coined) after watching her mother die at age 50 after enduring 18 pregnancies and witnessing the suffering of poor women and children as a nurse on New York's Lower East Side. A radical first, then a reformer and mother of three, Sanger devoted herself to helping women take charge of their bodies and their lives in the hope that every child would then be wanted and cared for. She fought courageously against the Comstock laws, which made it illegal to talk openly about contraception, then launched an international family planning campaign. Sanger is, in short, a great but overlooked hero. Reed, a creator of one-woman performances, including one based on Sanger's life, seeks to revitalize our appreciation for Sanger in this invaluable collection of her seminal, intelligent, and compassionate writings, which are accompanied by Reed's vibrant and illuminating commentary and a charming introduction by Sanger's granddaughter, Margaret Sanger Lampe, who remembers her red-haired, "small and soft-spoken" grandmother as an animated and giving woman who loved champagne, parties, and life itself.
