By doing so, she became a role model for women of her era and nurses of the future.

I also think the author made a convincing argument that this woman does deserve our respect as a society because she did make the impossible, possible and lived to see it. We should not shun her based on her association with movements that we do not agree with today. Throughout the life of Margaret Sanger we see that her humble beginnings made way for what she accomplished in her lifetime.

Following a period of physical and emotional exhaustion, Barton moved to Washington DC, where she worked as a clerk in the U.S Patent Office. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Barton resigned from the Patent Office to work as a volunteer. She begged everyone she knew for food and clothing. When she filled her small apartment with supplies she would rent warehouse space to fit more.
