In May 1960, the U.S. FDA approved the sale of the contraceptive pill, a drug that would arguably have a greater impact on American culture than any other in the nation's history. Within five years, more than six million American women would make it part of their daily lives. A new film at Sundance delves into the development of the pill. The documentary will air on PBS's American Experience.
