"You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing." -- Marie Stopes
Marie Carmichael Stopes (15 October 1880 — 2 October 1958) was a Scottish author, palaeobotanist, campaigner for women's rights and pioneer in the field of family planning. Stopes edited the newsletter Birth Control News which gave anatomically explicit advice, and in addition to her enthusiasm for protests at places of worship this provoked protest from both the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church. Her sex manual Married Love, which was written, she claimed, while she was still a virgin, was controversial and influential.
