This class is for women who want to understand basic truths and political causes of the unfairness in our daily lives; how a feminist movement was organized to change this; what we can do now to build the kind of movement that can put the male chauvinist establishment on the run again; and how each woman can contribute to that effort.

Tell the Food and Drug Administration: Side with Women and Girls, Not Drug Companies. Put All Forms of the Morning-After Pill Over the Counter.
In June 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally put Plan B One-Step® over the counter without any restrictions. The FDA did this in response to the Tummino v. Hamburg federal court decision in April 2013 which was pushed forward by a decade of grassroots feminist pressure.
The FDA’s action could have brought the U.S. in line with the scientific evidence and over 60 countries around the world that have no age restrictions on the Morning-After Pill.
