Sue MacGregor explores the controversial life of Marie Stopes. One of feminism's most complex icons, Stopes is remembered not only as the founder of modern birth control but also of the Portland Museum in Dorset, where locals recall her penchant for nude sunbathing and tireless anti-litter campaigns.
