Question: 1092

3. Margaret Sanger is best known for

A. being the first female cabinet member in a presidential administration.
B. devoting her adult life to pushing for women to have the right to vote.
C. advocating prohibition.
D. singing jazz songs.
E. opening the first birth control clinic in the United States.

Correct Answer: E


Sanger is the person most closely identified with promoting birth control. Francis Perkins was the first female cabinet member, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony were leaders of the women's suffrage movement. Women, more than men, supported prohibition, but no one nationally recognized leader is associated with the movement. Bessie Smith and Ethel Waters were well-known jazz singers of the decade.
