National Birth Control League

The National Birth Control League was founded in March 1915 by Mary Dennett, Clara Gruening Stillman and Jessie Ashley. Its main purpose was to overturn the laws which banned contraceptives from the U.S. mails. Campaigns were mounted in New York, but in 1919 the League was disbanded and reformed into the Voluntary Parenthood League.
