#Repost from @usowomen, via @attndotcom: You heard if from @sophiabush, birth control is about more than *just* contraception. It’s about controlling menstrual pain, regulating the flow of your period, and yes, choosing when to get pregnant. #HandsOffMyBC

In 1963, Gloria Steinem, then a 28-year-old reporter, went undercover as a Playboy Bunny. Playboy Magazine founder Hugh Hefner had declared in his “Emancipation Proclamation of the sexual revolution that Bunnies were earning $200 to $300 per week while enjoying a glamorous and exciting lifestyle. What Steinem found instead was good old fashioned exploitation of women: the Bunnies were charged for tiny infractions (such as $2.50 per minute that they were late for work), fired for catching so much as a cold, and if they tried to sue or unionize threatened with acid being thrown in their faces. After Steinem published her two-part expose, she received death threats and had trouble finding serious work for years. Today, Steinem is an author and feminist icon, and also deserves credit for pioneering gonzo journalism a full 3 years before Hunter S. Thompson.
