Date:7/2/2008

CHICAGO, July 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Female Health Company (Amex: FHC) today announced that it has been added to the Russell Microcap(R) Index after the Russell Investment Group reconstituted its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indexes on June 27, 2008.

The Russell Microcap(R) Index measures the performance of the microcap segment, representing less than 3% of the U.S. equity market. The Russell Microcap(R) Index includes the smallest 1,000 securities in the small-cap Russell 2000(R) Index plus the next 1,000 securities.

"We are very pleased to learn that The Female Health Company has qualified for inclusion in the Russell Microcap(R) Index and believe that this reflects our Company's continued positive momentum," stated O.B. Parrish, Chief Executive Officer of The Female Health Company. "Membership in the Russell Microcap(R) Index is based upon market capitalizations of qualifying companies, and The Female Health Company's 'market cap' has increased from approximately $58 million at the end of June 2007 to approximately $72 million currently. Russell is an industry leader for stock indexes, and we expect our inclusion in the Russell Microcap(R) Index to generate greater interest in our stock among institutional investors."

The Russell family of U.S. indexes is designed to be a comprehensive representation of the investable U.S. equity market. These indexes are value- weighted and include only common stocks belonging to corporations that are incorporated in the United States and its territories. Final membership lists for the Russell 3000(R), Russell 1000(R), Russell 2000(R), Russell Global, Russell Midcap(R) and Russell Microcap(R) indexes were posted to the Russell Investments website on June 30, 2008.
