Why the WNBA wants more people to know about the new over-the-counter birth control pill

·1 min

As the first over-the-counter birth control pill in the United States becomes available, its manufacturer is partnering with the WNBA to raise awareness about reproductive health and women’s health equity. The multi-year partnership will focus on civic engagement initiatives related to reproductive health, informing the public about the new birth control option, and hosting educational events on college campuses. The partnership will officially launch at the WNBA draft on April 15. This collaboration comes at a time when there is growing division around women’s reproductive rights in the United States.
