Women to Obama: Put the Morning-After Pill on the Shelf or We Will
On Tuesday, March 26, 2013, the New York chapter of National Women’s Liberation led a flash-mob action with feminist allies where more than 20 women put the Morning-After Pill on the shelf in a pharmacy in New York City. The action began with New York steering committee member, Dior Vargas, leading the crowd in chants. Then National Women’s Liberation leader, Erin Mahoney, demanded that the Obama Administration and Health and Human Services eliminate the sexist restrictions to the Morning-After Pill, and put it over-the-counter. Women then put the pill on the shelf next to condoms, where it should be!
