This is a biography by a disciple of an interesting woman with a mission. Dr. Stopes is a woman with an original, strong mind who worked in the biologic sciences. She became engrossed with the difficult problems of sex, particularly marriage, maternity and parenthood, and stepped into leadership in birth control with her book "Married Love." She is an engaging personality, and the book is an interesting and sympathetic account of her life as far as it has been lived, for she is still an active worker. The later chapters of the book are given to the ups and downs of the birth control movement in recent years.
