The Business of Birth Control Film Screening
Capitol View Lounge ◆ August 4, 2022 ◆ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Sixty years after the pill revolutionized women’s emancipation, The Business of Birth Control examines the complex relationship between hormonal birth control and women’s health and liberation.
The documentary traces the feminist movement to investigate and expose the pill’s risks alongside the racist legacy of hormonal contraception and its ongoing weaponization against communities of color.
Weaving together the stories of bereaved parents, body literacy activists and femtech innovators, the film reveals a new generation seeking holistic and ecological alternatives to the pill.
