Girls and women can take a pill to stop their periods; startups are offering alternatives to the drugstore pad and tampon; women can download apps to track their fertility; and savvy inventors are designing breast pumps that allow new mothers to pump not just at work but while working. This technological boom in women’s reproductive health is coupled with a societal shift in thinking with taboos falling away slowly.
WOMAN 2.0 is a digital series that explores the intersections between biology, culture, feminism, science, technology, business and public policy and poses the question of what the relationship between women and their bodies is in the 21st century–and what it can and should be.
