The pill takes the worry out of being mum

This badge was designed and distributed in about 1975. Contraception was a hot topic in the social and sexual revolutions of the 1970s.

Legislation prohibited the general publication of contraceptive advice and information, and contraception was seen as an issue for women. This badge was displayed at a time when some citizens were fighting for contraception to be freely available to all women.
