Don't thank Big Pharma for The Pill. Margaret Sanger and Katherine McKormick, wealthy and noted feminists, financed the research and persuaded someone to do the research and development.
RetirEd.

And thank them for it.

It's true, RetireEd, Sanger pushed the idea and much funding came from (I believe the spelling is McCormick) a rich heiress. But that gets you nowhere. It was men (Djerassi, Pincus, Rock, Colton, etc) who actually invented it, and profit-motivated, greedy big pharma was on it like a dog on a bone and so did the actual work of producing and distributing it. All around, an unprecedented achievement, it turns out.
