It has just been brought to my attention that today sees the 40th anniversary of The Pill, and I just felt like doing a little blog about it. Not much– I don’t really have time to do what I wanted to do, which is argue against the idea that the pill = women being promiscuous = bad. Maybe I’ll do that later.
For now, I just want to say that I, at least, am incredibly grateful not just for the magical pill, but for the fact that the packet has the days of the week written over each pill, meaning that you will know whether you’ve missed taking one or not. I can be rather airheaded, and it’s a saving grace at times.
So, whoever, designed the packaging for the pill, thanks a lot.
