Andrea Tone – The Evolution of Contraception

2010, Health & Longevity
Presented By: Andrea Tone

We’ve come a long way in our willingness to talk about sex. However, as a public history scholar, Dr. Andrea Tone advocates for a media outreach campaign that focuses on sexual education, more contraceptive choices, and the reality of infection and disease. Here, she discusses the evolution of contraception, the pharmaceutical industry, and whether the birth control pill can be considered a “marvelous feminine triumph.”
