Description
This is a biography of Mary Ware Dennett, who was an educator in sex education and the author of the widely distributed pamphlet, The Sex Side of Life. Dennett was a pioneer in sex education, who battled with Congress in her fight against the censorship law that banned the dissemination of any information about human sexuality. So threatening was Dennett's message to those who would limit a woman's knowledge of contraception, that the Post Office used exaggerated obscenity charges to frame Dennett in a trial that became a landmark case in obscenity law. Dennett was also executive secretary of the National American Woman Suffrage Association and founding organizer of the National Birth Control League, and she held key positions in the American Union Against Militarism.
