Sanger's general interest in sex education and women's health focuses on family, marriage and motherhood. As a nurse she saw graphic examples of the toll taken by frequent childbirth, miscarriage, and self-induced abortion. With access to contraceptive information prohibited on grounds of obscenity by state and federal laws, Sanger realized that many less well-off women did not have freedom from the physical hardships, fear, and dependency inherent in unwanted pregnancy. Awakened to the connection between contraception and working-class empowerment, Sanger became convinced that liberating women from the risk of too many unwanted pregnancies would effect fundamental social change in allowing women to claim their reproductive rights. She was never an advocate of abortion. Rather, Sanger launched a campaign challenging governmental censorship of contraceptive information by embarking on a series of law-defying confrontational actions designed to force birth control into the center of public debate.

Undoubtedly the most influential advocate for birth control even before the term existed, Margaret Sanger ignited a movement that has shaped our society to this day. Her views on reproductive rights have made her a frequent target of conservatives and so-called family values activists. Yet lately even progressives have shied away from her, citing socialist leanings and a purported belief in eugenics as a blight on her accomplishments. In this captivating new biography, the renowned feminist historian Jean H. Baker rescues Sanger from such critiques and restores her to the vaunted place in history she once held. Trained as a nurse and midwife in the gritty tenements of New York's Lower East Side, Sanger grew increasingly aware of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy—both physical and psychological. A botched abortion resulting in the death of a poor young mother catalyzed Sanger, and she quickly became one of the loudest voices in favor of sex education and contraception. The movement she started spread across the country, eventually becoming a vast international organization with her as its spokeswoman. Sanger's staunch advocacy for women's privacy and freedom extended to her personal life as well. After becoming a wife and mother at a relatively early age, she abandoned the trappings of home and family for a globe-trotting life as a women's rights activist. Notorious for the sheer number of her romantic entanglements, Sanger epitomized the type of "free love" that would become mainstream only at the very end of her life. That she lived long enough to see the creation of the birth control pill—which finally made planned pregnancy a reality—is only fitting.

Keine andere Liebesgeschichte hat das Publikum auf der ganzen Welt so mitgerissen wie diese große Saga um die verwöhnte Scarlett O'Hara und ihren zynischen Verehrer Rhett Butler.Mit einzigartiger Intensität zeichnet Margaret Mitchell nach, wie eine große Liebe zerbricht und lässt gleichzeitig eine längst vergangene Epoche lebendig werden. Die Südstaatlerin Scarlett O'Hara ist jung und vom Leben verwöhnt. Als Tochter eines Plantagenbesitzers lebt sie im Luxus auf dem Familiengut Tara, und es mangelt ihr nicht an Verehrern. Doch der Ausbruch des Bürgerkriegs verändert mit einem Schlag alles. Plötzlich muss Scarlett mit aller Kraft um die Erhaltung ihres Familienbesitzes kämpfen. Ein Mann taucht immer wieder in ihrem Leben auf und steht ihr in den Wirren der Nachkriegszeit bei: der skrupellose Kriegsgewinnler Rhett Butler. Zwischen ihm und Scarlett entwickelt sich eine große Liebe, doch beide sind auch viel zu stolz und eigensinnig, um diese Liebe zu leben... Margaret Mitchells Klassiker wurde sofort nach Erscheinen im Jahre 1936 zum Bestseller und hat seitdem Millionen Leser auf der ganzen Welt begeistert. Die legendäre Verfilmung drei Jahre später machte Vivien Leigh als Scarlett und Clark Gable als Rhett zum berühmtesten Liebespaar der Filmgeschichte.

Von da an beginnt für die beiden eine Reise, auf der sie wunderschöne wie traurige Dinge erleben und großartige sowie kleine Augenblicke – das Leben eben.

Are overburdened mothers justified in their appeals for contraceptives or abortions?... Will anyone... dare to say to these women that they should go on bringing helpless children in to the world to share their misery?... To say to these women that they should continue their helpless breeding of the helpless is stupid brutality. -from "Avoiding Childbirth" An iconic figure in the fight for reproductive rights for women in America, Margaret Sanger was a powerful voice in the early years of the 20th century. This 1920 book is Sanger's cry for the legalization of birth control and the education of women about their own bodies. With a fiery passion, she discusses: .women's struggle for freedom .the wickedness of creating large families .contraceptives or abortion? .legislating woman's morals .and more. An important record of the beginnings of the feminism in the modern era, Sanger's words remain vital and necessary at a time when women's control over their bodies continues to be challenged. American activist MARGARET HIGGINS SANGER (1879-1966) was an early advocate of birth control; she served as president of the International Planned Parenthood Federation from 1952 to 1959. She also wrote Happiness in Marriage (1926) and her autobiography (1938).

Glühende Liebesbriefe waren ihm unangenehm, Widmungen von Musikstücken lehnte er ab, die Vermarktung seines Konterfeis mit Gipsbüsten duldete er ebensowenig wie eine "Hitler-Zigarette". In der Privatkanzlei des "Führers"wurden Tausende Briefe archiviert, viele persönlich gelesen und weiterbearbeitet.Unter Staubschichten von Jahrzehnten verbargen sich in einem Moskauer Archiv die authentischen Zeugnisse deutscher Mentalität. Henrik Eberle hat sie erstmals systematisch ausgewertet und kommentiert ? eine Fundgrube für Psychologen, Historiker und Pädagogen. Bittbriefe, Gebete, Treueschwüre, Appelle und Hilferufe ? nicht nur aus Deutschland ? bilden ein Stimmungsbarometer der Jahre 1925 bis 1945, das einen schauern lässt. Die Menschen legten sich dem Diktator zu Füßen ? und wandten sich ab, als der Erfolg den "Führer"verlässt.
