On October 16, 1916, Margaret Sanger and her sister Ethel Byrne opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S. in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. 100 years later, Planned Parenthood continues the movement for women’s health, rights, and equality. Join a panel of thought leaders for a look at the past, present, and future of women’s health. The panel includes Alex Sanger, Margaret’s grandson and current Chair of the International Planned Parenthood Council, Imani Gandy, Senior Legal Analyst at Rewire News and co-host of This Week in Blackness Prime, and Professor Lynn Roberts, CUNY School of Public Health. Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! moderates. The discussion will be followed by a special performance by members of Girl Be Heard.
