Discussion on 50th Anniversary of the Pill

By Christine |

UPDATE: Interview got bumped for breaking news. It is scheduled to air Monday.

Our Bodies Ourselves Executive Director Judy Norsigian will be on “The Emily Rooney Show” on WGBH-FM (89.7 in Boston) today at 12 noon, discussing the 50th anniversary of the pill. You can listen live online.

Elaine Tyler May, a professor of American studies and history at the University of Minnesota and the author of “America and the Pill: A History of Promise, Peril and Liberation,” will also be on the program. Here’s an op-ed May wrote that appeared in the Washington Post this past Sunday: “The Pill: Making Motherhood Better for 50 Years,” and an interview she did recently at Feministing.

We’ll post more birth control-related stories, with comments from Judy, later today.
