Historical & Cultural Influences on Human Sexuality
A Time Line
1973
Roe v. Wade was ruled on. The result is that abortion is not illegal until the child is considered viable.
1965
Connecticut's 1879 anti-contraception statute is ruled unconstitutional
1960
The "Pill" goes on the market. Reliable contraception controlled by the female is finally available to the masses.
1965
6 million American women are using the Pill.
1920s
Middle class Americans convert from Victorianism to Freudianism. Doctors and Psychologists begin advising their female patients to strive for a happy marriage through mutual sexual satisfaction.
Women are able to control their fertility and embrace their sexuality in a way that had never happened in the past.

Contraception in the form of the pill is readily available to any American woman that is interested in taking it.

This is the first time that many women are given the idea that they can want to be sexually satisfied and be seen as an equal in their marriage.

The 1879 statute ruled selling or distributing information on contraception to be illegal. When this statute was ruled unconstitutional it meant that information on contraception was made available to anyone who wanted to know more about the subject.

This allows women to have more control over their own fertility. If the woman does not want to have a baby she has the option to have an abortion.

1978
The first "test-tube" baby is born marking the beginning of assisted reproduction.
Families that cannot have children naturally now have the ability to have children through artificial insemination.

1969
July 27, 1969 the Stonewall Riot occurs. It was a police raid of gay bars followed by crowds fighting the police. The Gay Liberation Front is founded in response to the riot.
This instance is one of the first times that the gay and lesbian community is brought to the forefront causing the public to become aware of the plight of the gay and lesbian community.

1953
The American School Health Association launched a program for family life education in schools nationwide.
This is the first time that a program regarding sexuality is provided in a national educational environment.
1955
The American Medical Association and the National Education Association published five pamphlets called the "sex education series" for schools.
Sex education materials were made available to school-age children in order to help them understand about sex without having to learn it from their parents.

1873
Individualist anarchists protest the Comstock Act that prohibited "obscenity" from being mailed. The anarchists began publishing pamphlets on birth control.
Once the anarchists began to publish information on birth control they made it available to women who would not have had access to the information otherwise. This gives those women more freedom over their sexuality.
