Day Eight: February 14


Today, we are watching The Pill. As you watch this film, think about the following questions:

  • Why was the pill so revolutionary?
  • What were/are the limits and dangers of the pill?
  • At whose expense was this pill developed?
  • What are some different ways that you imagine the pill as a feminist issue?
On Wednesday, we will be discussing the essays from Dorothy Roberts and Laura Briggs, both available on WebVista.

Here's a film worksheet that I am distributing in class today.
