Margaret Sanger, "Your Crime," Aug 1914.

Source: " The Woman Rebel, Aug. 1914, p. 43 Margaret Sanger Microfilm, Collected Documents Series C16:0557."


Becky Edelsohn was imprisoned for disorderly conduct. She is not disorderly. She is prisoner of conscience. She made an anti-war speech once when war with Mexico was popular. We have not forgotten Becky but we want the community to know that they and their Mayor, their Judge, their Courts and their Commissioner of Corrections are all Becky's jailers. We do not aim to release Becky from her jail. She will release herself or she will die. We must understand our own crime.
