NEW YORK, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Pill, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals is collaborating with some of the most influential female empowerment figures to reflect on the remarkable achievements of women since the introduction of the first birth control pill in 1960.  Icons including two-time Academy Award winning actress Hilary Swank; American feminist and journalist Gloria Steinem; historian and author of the newly published book, America and The Pill, Elaine Tyler May; founder and owner of Dermalogica Jane Wurwand; and notable professor and ObGyn Diana Ramos, MD, came together today during an intimate roundtable luncheon to share their unique insights about this medical and cultural landmark.
