Title: The Score is Even
Date: 6/14/2017
Description: A review of the Addyi story by PharmedOut. Shows how members of "Even the Score" were effective shills for the drug. The site has now been taken down. Takeaway: "It is sad to see advocacy groups become mouthpieces for pharma. It is even sadder when those mouthpieces are feminist groups that should be protecting the interest of women but instead are protecting a company bottom line."
