Biographical Text

Susanna Green (ca. 1855-1937), a British-born former headmistress of an English girls school in Constantinople, then living in France, had recently met How-Martyn and Emily Rieder and become a birth control activist. Convinced that birth control was essential to any social work efforts, and facile with several languages, Green was one of a small cadre of women helping MS organize the World Population Conference. Green also tried to negotiate with the Comité National D’Études Socialies et Politiques, an influential group of Paris’s “best thinkers,” to host a Sanger lecture there.
