Introduction: socialist morality, the nuclear family, and state labor; 1. In the hands of physicians: abortion, birth control, and claims to women's labor; 2. 'The husband must protect the wife and the latter obey the husband': operation family, wedding palaces, and nuclear families; 3. From the streets to the home: the re-education and resistance of female prostitutes; 4.
