On Tuesday, October 22nd at 7:00pm, join Locust Moon and Drawn & Quarterly for an evening with cartoonist Peter Bagge to celebrate the launch of Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story, a dazzling, accessible biography of the activist, educator, nurse, mother, and protofeminist who founded Planned Parenthood. Bagge will be presenting a slideshow focusing on Sanger’s social and political activism and how Woman Rebel came together, sharing original sample pages from his book.
Woman Rebel presents the life of the outspoken, driven Margaret Sanger from her birth in the late nineteenth century to her death after the invention of the birth control pill. Balancing humor and respect, Bagge makes Sanger whole and human, showing how her flaws fueled her fiery activism just as much as her compassionate nature did. Sanger’s legacy is still incredibly relevant, important, and inspiring.
