Updating

In the last year my work has featured in the Guardian, with an Op-Ed that was one of their most-read of 2016. As a result I was interviewed for NPR for the first time, as well as tens of other radio shows, podcasts, magazine articles and newspapers.

I was also interviewed for the BBC for their "Future of Contraception" mini-doc.

The September issue of Vogue dedicated a feature to "Sweetening the Pill" and the women choosing to kick hormonal contraception.

And I gave my first real book presentation at Bluestockings Bookstore in New York City.

For an update on the progress of the documentary read this collaborative piece for Alanis.com and another for Groknation.

You can also join myself, Ricki and Abby at Cycles+Sex in NYC.

Sweetening The Pill - A Documentary

My book is the inspiration for a documentary project currently in production. Thank you for supporting our Kickstarter campaign. We, quite literally, could not make this movie without you.

The film is executive produced by Ricki Lake and directed by Abby Epstein, the team that brought you the groundbreaking 'The Business of Being Born.' We like to say 'Sweetening the Pill' is like 'The Business of Being Born: The Prequel" because we spend so much more time trying to avoid, rather than achieve, pregnancy!
