Here's What to Give to Every Young Woman You Know

The knowledge that she no longer has to get a prescription for emergency contraception, or explain to some tight-ass freakazoid at the pharmacy counter why she wants it.

From Salon:

The Food and Drug Administration has announced that generic brands of emergency contraception will now be sold over the counter without age restrictions.
This is good news, as generic alternatives to Plan B One-Step are less expensive but equally effective.
Then help her get a prescription to the pill, extoll the virtues of condoms, and teach her how to prevent anyone from doping her drink.

That's after you teach every young man you know that rape is a crime, lack of consent is rape and anything short of conscious, repeated, enthusiastic YES is not consent.
