Dear Colleagues,

Please help spread the word on a survey I’m conducting for my project on the history of emergency contraception. Here is a brief description of my project and the URL for the online survey.

This project examines the history of emergency contraception from the 1960s until the present. Postcoital methods of contraception were first developed in the early 1960s as part of larger movement to provide reproductive health care to female adolescents and adults. This book will be the first to describe the history of emergency contraception from its beginnings in the 1960s. There are other historical accounts of the development of emergency contraception but they only treat very recent developments over the past two decades. They also only consider the point of view of scientists, physicians, and population groups. My project will use these sources, but will also discuss how women patients played a role in the development of emergency contraception.

You may take the survey at: <>

Thank you for your time and assistance.
