About the book:

This is a complex and riveting tale involving eccentric scientists, the power of the Catholic church and a group of women and activists who would not take "no" for an answer. Rather than assign a "father" of the pill, Asbell credits two women as its mothers. Created in an era when women struggled to control family size by such horrific methods as Lysol douches, the pill changed women's lives forever in ways far more reaching than sexual freedom.
