She left the U.S. to avoid a charge of obscenity, investigated an improved diaphragm, and returned to find her sister in jail and her husband just out of jail. Margaret Sanger's NYC clinic was in great demand, but soon closed as illegal. An activist and worldwide speaker, Sanger was a prolific writer on family planning, sexual fulfillment, and contraception.
