Reported by MTV Act.
In the wake of the Supreme Court decision that for-profit companies can be don’t have to provide birth control to employee, feminist activists have taken to Twitter to spark debate about the controversial ruling. Late Tuesday night, Lena Dunham joined their ranks.
Her first tweet was personal, which was no surprise coming from a writer, director, and actor who makes a living putting herself out there.
I need birth control because I have endometriosis and it helps manage pain. Why do you?
— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 23, 2014
Other women followed suit, sharing why they use birth control. Some use it to control acne, while others use it because they simply don’t want to get pregnant right now.
To end the discussion, however, Dunham tweeted what most people are (hopefully!) thinking: that women don’t need to explain why they’re using birth control.
