Abstract

This chapter seeks to situate the struggles for reproductive freedom in Germany within the larger topic of women's citizenship during World War I and the post-war period. It teases out the manner in which an issue formerly regarded as private became part of public policy and gained political centrality and how women utilized this for their own ends.
