This month the National Women’s Law Center is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the birth control pill. To help recognize this golden anniversary, NWLC is compiling a list of 50 ways the pill has revolutionized women’s lives.
Help us commemorate the impact the birth control pill has made in women’s lives by letting us know how it changed your life.
Did you want to decide when or whether to have children? The ability to gain either economic or employment security? Have fewer PMS symptoms? Control your acne? Whatever the reason, big or small, if the pill was the right decision for you, tell us how it changed your life.
At the end of the month, NWLC will release a list of the top 50 different ways the birth control pill has affected your lives. Make sure your story is included.
