Is female-controlled contraception one of the greatest things that science has done for women? With International Women’s Day taking place in March, we tackle this question face on in this thought-provoking panel discussion on the science, ethics and future of hormone-based contraceptive technology. How has the Pill changed the lives of women today? Is there still more to know about how it works? Will there be a pill for men coming on the market any time soon? Join epidemiologist Valerie Beral, fertility expert Allan Pacey, and social anthropologist Vicky Boydell to explore the social and chemical implications.

Chaired by science writer and broadcaster Vivienne Parry.
