This site chronicles Sanger's 1914 publication of the radical, feminist journal, _The Woman Rebel_, and her emergence as the foremost leader of the birth control movement. This edition documents Sanger's indictment for violation of federal obscenity laws, her unlawful flight from prosecution, her 13 months in exile in Europe, and her emotional return to New York in the fall of 1915 to face trial, and in so doing, traces the inception of the birth control movement in the U.S. The editors of the Margaret Sanger Papers have created an electronic edition that provides images of each document, headed by an identifying target that provides links to biographical sketches of individuals and organizations mentioned, the text of the laws broken, and a day-by-day chronology of Sanger's activities.

The editors of both projects welcome comments on these electronic editions and encourage their use in college and high school classrooms as well as by researchers.

The Model Editions Partnership is a consortium of seven historical editions which has joined forces with leaders of the Text Encoding Initiative and the Center for Electronic Text in the Humanities. Other editions represented on the Model Editions website are: the DOCUMENTARY HISTORY OF THE FIRST FEDERAL CONGRESS, the DOCUMENTARY HISTORY OF THE RATIFICATION OF THE CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS, the PAPERS OF HENRY LAURENS, the ABRAHAM LINCOLN LEGAL PAPERS, and the PAPERS OF GENERAL NATHANAEL GREENE.

The Model Editions Partnership was funded by an initial grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, and a software grant from the Inso Corporation. The Partnership was initiated at the University of South Carolina's Department of History, College of Liberal Arts, and is now located in and supported by the Division of Libraries and Information Systems. Additional funding for "Margaret Sanger and _The Woman Rebel_" was provided to the Sanger Project by the Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller Fund and the Samuel Rubin Foundation.
