We Won't Let Pharmacies Undercut our Victory on the Morning-After Pill!
Feminists won a major victory when our decade long organizing campaign resulted in over-the-counter access for all women and girls to the morning-after pill. But our victory is being seriously undermined. The pill continues to be so outrageously expensive that many of us can't afford to buy it. And now, pharmacies are locking Plan B One-Step in ridiculously large, locked plastic cases, or hiding it behind-the-counter. These boxes are so attention grabbing one feminist likened them to walking across the store in a dunce cap.
We won't stop fighting for justice. Organize with us:
