So… that happened.

For those of you who haven’t heard yet, the Supreme Court of the United States declared with a 5-4 majority that for-profit corporations need not provide coverage for contraception to their employees if the corporation believes that this compromises their religious freedom. This decision furthers the notion that corporations are people… who are allowed control over the women who work for them. This patriarchy-upholding decision deems women unable to make autonomous decisions about their health, well-being, financial security, and (god-forbid) their own sexual decision-making power.
Not at all surprising, all three of the female Justices were part of the dissenting minority.
Justice Ginsburg’s scathing dissent is worth a read: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/06/best-lines-hobby-lobby-decision
