Neo-Malthusianism in France

A new web exhibition presents the story of contraception in France in the 19th and 20th centuries. The anarchists Paul Robin and Jeanne and Eugène Humbert were trailblazers and leaders of the neo-Malthusian debate.

The ideas of both adherents and opponents of birth control are presented in posters, rare and often fragile booklets, pamphlets and letters, mainly from the Jeanne and Eugène Humbert papers at the IISH.
