Birth control pill

Contraceptives and the sexual revolution [...]

The Industrial Revolution during the nineteenth century and the growth of science and technology, medicine and health care, resulted in better contraceptives being manufactured. Advances in the manufacture and production of rubber made possible the design and production of condoms that could be used by hundreds of millions of men and women to prevent pregnancy at little cost. Advances in steel production and immunology made abortion readily available. Advances in chemistry, pharmacology, and knowledge of biology, and human physiology and all sorts of new drugs led to the discovery and perfection of oral contraceptives also known as "The Pill". --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_revolution [Oct 2004]

Comment by Paglia

Patriarchy, routinely blamed for everything, produced the birth control pill, which did more to free comtemporary women than feminism itself. --Camille Paglia
