This article focuses on women who helped to spread information about sex awareness. Emma Goldman was born in Lithuania. At the age of 15, to escape an arranged marriage, she emigrated to Rochester, New York. Internationally renowned as "Queen of the Anarchists", Red Emma preached in Russian, German, Yiddish and English. Her heart-felt message was that "private property, the church and the state were great evils." She also demanded "perfect, unrestrained freedom for everyone." Dr. Marie Stopes was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. She is best remembered as the author of one of the first British sex manuals. Margaret Sanger was born in Corning, New York and trained as a nurse. She opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S. and popularized the term "birth control."
