Cover to What Every Girl Should Know

Sanger, Margaret
Girard, Kan.: Haldeman-Julius Co., 1922, cover.

The pamphlet What Every Girl Should Know is a compilation of Sanger's early articles on birth control. Sanger had been prosecuted for transmitting “obscene” materials through the mail. By the 1920s, the federal government loosened its enforcement on mailing birth control information, although the obscenity laws were not formally overturned until the 1960s.
