Woman of Valor? YES! Woman of Valor? NO!!!

I know of two books with the title Women of Valor.  The first, written by Irving Finemann,  is about Henrietta Szold, who rescued thousands of children from the Nazis.  She was, indeed, a woman of valor.
 I plan to get and read this book.
The second book, written by Ellen Chesler, is about Margaret Sanger, who founded the organization which causes the death of thousands of children every year.  She was anything but a
woman of valor.
I will NOT be reading this book.
