The impact “The Pill” made on the lives of boomer women can't be overestimated. It played a major role in every facet of our young adult years: some of us chose to delay having children and build careers instead, others chose a more traditional role and eschewed the pill in favor of a household full of kids, while many decided against having families altogether. Whatever the decision, the pill was the magic medication that gave us choice!

Our favorite observer of life after 50, Suzanne Braun Levine, joins us to share her thoughts on the pill and its aftermath. In light of the research and interviews she conducted for her latest book, How We Love Now, Suzanne will bring her insights and perspective to the choices we made back then and how they are impacting our lives today.

You'll  want to be certain to tune in for this fascinating look at family values—boomer style!
