For someone born in 1879, Margaret Sanger has been making a lot of headlines recently. As a pioneer of the movement to make birth control legal and accessible, and the founder of the organization that became Planned Parenthood, Sanger’s work has been thrust into the limelight as the modern fight over birth control and abortion access heats up. In this Urbanite Radio Story, we speak with Goucher College Professor Jean Baker, author of the new book Margaret Sanger: A Life of Passion.Dr. Baker joins us to discuss Sanger’s life and legacy, and why her work remains so relevant today.
