Betty Mary Geotting, (1897-1980), was an early women's rights advocate in El Paso who, while doing volunteer work among El Paso's poor during the depression, became convinced that the misery of poverty was linked to family size. In 1937 she and other courageous women and men fought ridicule and boycott threats to found the city's first birth control clinic.
