Event Information
THE BUSINESS OF BIRTH CONTROL
SVA Theatre
Sunday, Nov 14, 2021 1:30 PM
There can be no real gender justice without an unpacking of the power structures surrounding the reproductive health industry complex—and of the choices that the market pushes on women. Abby Epstein’s latest documentary highlights the dark history of eugenics and underfunded research that the birth control pill, often heralded as a feminist turning point in the history of reproductive rights, hides within itself.
