I’ve had OBOS on my shelves since 1972 (I was 11) and even before, I’m pretty sure. It was the first place I could look up all sorts of things I couldn’t say aloud, or wanted to find out about privately (lesbians! labias! yeast infections!), and one of first places where I could hear other women’s voices talking about all of this verboten stuff. Nearly 30 years later it remains a vital, vibrant ”discussion” and source of information. All my love on its 40th birthday.
