Excerpts and Full Texts from Global Projects
From the time Our Bodies, Ourselves (OBOS) was first published in 1970, women from many different countries have been inspired to produce global adaptations -- initially in print, and more recently in digital and socially interactive formats.
Below are excerpts -- or, in some cases, the entire resource -- from materials the groups have created. We hope to post additional resources as they become available.
- Excerpts from Ne Dhe Trupiynë, në Shekullin e ri, an Albanian adaptation from The Gender Alliance for Development Center
- Excerpts from Al Mara wa Kayanaha, an Arabic adaptation created by the group Women and Their Bodies
