Product description

Review

"Authoritative, readable and rippling with the energy of the life it conveys." -- Daniel J. Kevles, The New York Times Book Review

"The Sanger portrayed by Chesler is compelling, and persuasively counters the tendency of earlier biographers to either eulogize or condemn...Chesler's exhaustive scholarship has yielded not only a fuller picture of Sanger but new knowledge about the history of birth control." -- Rosalind Pollack Petchesky, Boston Sunday Globe

"Woman of Valor's chief virtue is a sweeping and authoritative grasp not only of Sanger's life but of the political detail and maneuvering behind it." -- Ruth Brandon, The Washington Post Book World

"Chesler illuminates Sanger's rich personal and public life with a sophisticated understanding of psychology and history, yet the book reads like a good novel." -- Sylvia A. Law, Professor of Law, New York University

"A major contribution to women's history." -- Library Journal --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
