Although people with rigorous rules such as the ancient Greeks practiced the use of birth control and the invention of modern contraceptive methods---such as condoms, diaphragms, and douches---have been around since the early 1800’s, birth control still did not prevail in the twentieth century and was highly controversial. Margaret Sanger gave people a new and radical ideology stating how birth control helped women in many more ways than their sexuality.

He taught you how to swim in your grandmother’s pool, and sometimes he would lift you up onto his shoulders. He loved you girls so much.” I was almost thirteen, so these memories were being pulled from over five or six years ago, yet they suddenly felt as if they were
Through their contributions in various fields of work, women proved their worth to society. They did not only change their perspective of themselves, but also societies perspective on what women could do. After the war, women aimed for universal suffrage which was supported by the men who returned from the war. At the close of World War I, women received partial victory through the 1918 Representation of People Act that allowed British women over the age of 30 to vote . The exclusion of allowing the younger women to vote until 1928 showed the lack of equality as the younger women took up majority of the positions in industries, as nurses, and volunteeres in organizations during the war.
