Cover of Nuestros Cuerpos, Nuestras Vidas (2000)Nuestros Cuerpos, Nuestras Vidas

Cultural adaptation of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” created specifically for Latina women.

Like the original text, “Nuestros Cuerpos, Nuestras Vidas” honors the personal stories of women; however, it acknowledges that Latina perspectives on health and sexuality differ from those expressed in the U.S. edition, and issues of cultural identity and politics, along with living between Latin America and United States, inform the health of Latina women.
