But, as I said, "revolutionary" as the control issue may have been in that one small aspect, there were still many, many other factors in play. Just look up the Wikipedia page on the subject it's far too much to even get into here. Feminism, pornography, abortion, the drug culture and hippy/free love movement, Kinsey, changing demographics after WW2, effective antibiotics against syphilis, Freud, Sanger, Reed, de Beauvoir, Steinem, Plath, Hefner, Joplin, etc etc etc Pinning the entire movement on one development that took place 40 years after it started seems to me to be missing the big picture. Plus the large majority of the strong, independent, sexually open women I know do not even use oral contraceptives, and might still take offense if someone stated they weren't in control of their own bodies.
I got 2 and I think I typed every remotely plausible answer for the Chinese one, bar the correct answer (and any type ins). The others I hadn't a clue on.
I would say "You must be new here," but you're Level 78, so . . . I guess you don't read the comments much?
From the opening paragraph Wikipedia article on the Scientific Revolution
"... The Scientific Revolution took place in Europe towards the end of the Renaissance period and continued through the late 18th century, influencing the intellectual social movement known as the Enlightenment. While its dates are debated, the publication in 1543 of Nicolaus Copernicus's De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres) is often cited as marking the beginning of the Scientific Revolution."
