I learned to accept myself
Submitted by: Tamara Safford
I was never a star in being a feminist, although it is my lifestyle. I read many feminist books in the 1970s, and followed the trend by living in a commune of women only in New Haven.
The book, Our Bodies, Ourselves, impacted my life as a book that overcomes fear to admit you are a woman alone, with many morale and ethical family values that confine us and can impair health rights.
It is a book that gave me an approach to health rights and how to feel well and accept myself.
