3. How was Margaret Sanger ahead of her time in understanding public relations, the media, marketing, etc.? Cite some specific examples. 4. What was the eugenic theory? Why was it controversial and questionable for Sanger to link her cause with it? 5. Sanger worked hard to associate “birth control” with medicine and science rather than obscenity, which many related it to. In your opinion, why were devices like diaphragms and condoms perceived as “obscene” in the first place? 6. Sanger was embraced in Japan and later (after Gandhi’s death) in India. Why did these Asian nations find relevance in her cause? 7. How do you feel about Sanger after reading this article? Record: 1 Title: Margaret Sanger's `Deeds of terrible virtue'.
