Regular price $18.50 Sale

This book traces the quest for contraception in New Zealand and explores the connected realms of sex and politics. By 1900 many couples had chosen to have fewer children - but contraceptive methods were limited and often desperate. In the 1930s a radical group of women set out to help people access sex information and contraception. They became the Family Planning Association, and encountered head-on entrenched moral viewpoints and fears about declining population. Often funny, sometimes tragic or bizarre, always controversial, this book investigates a relatively unexplored aspect of our lives. It offers insight into sexual attitudes, gives a timely warning against repeating past mistakes, and provides a context for future decisions on sexual and reproductive health issues. This 2000 Steele Roberts Paperback is in Very Good condition.
