1960-2010 - Episode 2

Logo for 1960-2010 - Episode 2

In the second part of our series where commentators born in 1960 reflect on the social consequences of the 1960s, Cristina Odone discusses sex and the sixties. The arrival of the pill at the start of the decade offered women the chance to truly rebalance relationships in a feminine direction. Could emotions, nurture, commitment and love have taken centre stage instead of empty sexualisation? And if that opportunity was indeed thrown away fifty years ago, might it be about to present itself again? Producer: Giles Edwards.
