Mary Ware Dennett

I am in love with a book that I just picked up at the library. It is called "The Sex Side of Life, Mary Ware Dennett's Pioneering Battle for Birth Control and Sex Education." This book is seriously great. It has such great quotes in it and I am only on page 56!

This book makes you want to stand up MORE for the cause of women, birth control, sex education, and society. I like how the book shows you how the changes grew from not speaking about anything, to being thrown in jail for publishing or talking about anything sex related. Our country has come a long way, but we still have ways to go.

I would suggest that everyone should read this book, and be thankful that this woman stood up for what she believed in.
