  • The fundamental philosophies that form the roots of Planned Parenthood and how those roots manifest today

  • An understanding of Sanger's work in the context of American culture in the 30s and 40s
  • The advancement of Progressivism in America in the 30s and 40s, in government, education, science, the media, the women's rights movement, and the Church.
