THE PILL

A woman holds a birth control pill dispenser indicating the day of the week in New York in August 1974. Though medical trials for the oral contraceptive started in the late 1950s, Enovid was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1960. The sexual revolution was born. Known as "The Pill," it changed the balance of hormones estrogen and progesterone in women to prevent pregnancy. It was invented by Dr. Gregory Pincus and Dr. John Rock with the support of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. (AP Photo/Jerry Mosey)
