Why Do We Need Intersectional Feminism? An Illustrated History of Margaret Sanger’s Views on Birth Control


"Margaret Sanger’s feminism blurs the lines between the East and the West. It carries continuities and a resemblance to strands of feminism understood and promoted by contemporary liberal India and their dominant positioning vis-à-vis marginalised groups, such as Dalits, Muslims and the urban and rural poor." writes Urvi Desai. This visual narrative is based on her article "Complicating the Feminist: Intellectual Legacies of Birth Control in India" which was published in the Economic and Political Weekly on 12 March 2020.
