The Pill Turns 50

The Pill Turns 50! Ruminator Books,
On Oct. 15, while most of America was whipping itself into an anthrax-induced frenzy, the Pill quietly turned 50 years old. Despite changes in science and sexual politics, the Pill has remained a symbol of sexual freedom to women worldwide. 'The Sex War is still being fought these days, and the birth of the Pill in 1951 certainly has a hand in spurring it on,' says Ruminator Books. Americans haven't stopped thinking about what goes on under the sheets, the Web site notes, and in recognition of oral contraceptives' half-century, the siter offers a list of books about the Pill and its relationship between science and sex.
