As a comprehensive autobiography, the book includes her early and later life; experiences that shaped her convictions and ideologies; her advocacies and its contributions to society and women's rights; the organizations she formed; the difficulties and oppositions she encountered; and her travels to different countries. The text will appeal to historians and women's rights activists, especially those who are interested with Margaret Sanger, her life, and life's work. Due to its simplicity and genuineness, reading enthusiasts will also find the book not only interesting, but also inspirational and motivating.
