FREE-THINKING EDITOR DEFIES GOVERNMENT TO SUPPRESS HER PAPER
"I intend to continue making public my ideas through my paper if I have to go to jail for
This was the defiant statement made today by Mrs. Margaret Sanger, of no. 34 Post avenue,
editor and publisher of "The Woman Rebel," a monthly
newspaper which the Federal authorities have just decided, is unmailable. Deputy
Attorney-General Lamar has communicated the
Washington decision to the New York post office.
"No Gods; no masters," is the motto of "The Woman
Rebel," which, Mrs. Sanger says, is published for "an advanced,
thinking frankly speaking feminine clientele"
"Inform the working people and you will place a great weapon in their hands," she declared today to an Evening Journal
reporter. "It is a woman's duty to have an ideal and to speak and
act in defiance of conventions."
Over on the other side, I noticed the difference in the manner in which children are
raised. In Scotland you see a woman with a flock of children at her heels
crying for bread. In almost all of the cities, children are treated as dogs and not as
individuals. In almost all of the cities, except those of France,
children are treated as dogs and not as individuals. In France, where it is lawful to
give out information on this character, everyone seems glad to have children, but not
too many of them. Every encouragement is given to childbirth.
"Over here we seem to have no consideration for children. We breed them wholesale,
especially in the poorer sections of the city where children amount to no more than dogs
in the street."
"I believe that woman has been enslaved by the machinery of the world, by sex
conventions, by motherhood, by wage slavery, by middle-class morality, by superstition
and by custom. Too many children in a poor family mean starvation and children that are
of no account."
