Poster entitled 'Women beware of Man made Medicine', London, England, 1978-1980
‘Women beware of Man made Medicine’, states this poster. It was produced by The East London Health Project and features an image of a woman surrounded by information relating to the oral contraceptive pill. The photomontage was created by artist Loraine Leeson. It aimed to highlight potential side effects of the contraceptive pill. In 1978, the East London Trades Councils wanted to give information about health issues to the local population. This was at a time when cuts were being made to the National Health Service (NHS). The East London Health Project was formed for this task and eight different posters were produced over the two years it existed.
