Reproductive Justice Club: Movie Night

"The Pill"

Thursday, February 21, 2013 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The Reproductive Justice of OSU student club will be showing the film "The Pill," which explores the development and approval of oral hormonal contraception. Effective contraception was one of the most important developments for women's liberation, but the U.S. also has a dark history of controlling women's fertility, especially for women of color. After the film we will discuss some of the less known aspects of the development of birth control including the risky testing that was done on Puerto Rican women, and the negative effects that the pill has had on women's health.
