Modern women's movement started May 9, 1960.
On that date, FDA approved first birth control pill.
Women finally gained reliable control of reproduction. They could decide if and when they would have children.
Women gained freedom making them equal and my opinion better than men.

Some believe Donald Trump is cause of "Me Too" and sudden increase in women running for political office.
Mr. Trump is only a catalyst, who has fanned flames of a roaring fire that started on May 9, 1960.

It is 57 years since the "Pill" was available. Let me reflect on the impact, by taking a brief look at how it affected me, as a man.
My first wife and I graduated from college in 1969. She wanted to pursue a career in journalism and relied on the birth control pill to prevent pregnancy.
While my career was mediocore. My wife soared.
She started at a small radio station and quickly moved up to a TV news editor at a major network. At age 30, she decided to have a child and stopped taking the "Pill".
Our family lived in a large home near excellent schools. With our two incomes (hers was much larger) we enjoyed a good life.
This brief story has been repeated in millions of families.
Women are Equal and Better.
