Abby L. Schwarz

Abby Schwarz, Ph.D., is a behavioral ecologist (semiretired) and was one of 12 women who wrote the first edition of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” in 1969.

Her career took her to California in early 1970, so it was impractical for her to be a formal member of the founding collective. However, through the years she has continued to stay involved and has been a contributor for the chapters on anatomy and physiology, birth control, common medical conditions and menopause and perimenopause.

Abby has given courses on women’s health issues based on the book and promoted the book wherever she went. The book changed her life and the lives of others. Knowledge IS power!
