50th Anniversary of The Pill

10 Sep

Since the 1960’s, The Pill has been the most chosen form of contraception in the United States. It gave women a sexual freedom, and gave others a way of maintaining a steady hormonal balance. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the birth control pill and today it’s hard to imagine life without it.

We got a chance to have a conversation with her:
