In Translation: My Body is Mine

Ever since "Our Bodies, Ourselves" became a best seller in the United States, it has inspired women in other countries to adapt it—in part or as a whole—to their unique cultural needs. Through the Our Bodies Ourselves Global Initiative, we support more than twenty-two women’s organizations as they develop materials based on "Our Bodies, Ourselves" and use their resources in wide-scale outreach to advance the health and human rights of women and girls in their countries. Although the earliest projects were located primarily in Europe, we have since collaborated with organizations across Africa, South and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Europe to bring culturally meaningful and reliable information to communities where it is most needed. As a result of our partnerships, resources based on the book are now available in more than twenty-five languages and in print, digital, and other socially interactive formats. You will read about our partners in the “In Translation” sidebars and we invite you to visit our website to learn more.

Below are the "In Translation" sidebars in the 2011 edition of "Our Bodies, Ourselves":
