  • 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 it." 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." Mrs. Sanger belongs to the I.W.W. Emma Goldman is one of the contributors to her paper.
