About Our Bodies Ourselves

In 1970, a group of women in the Boston area self-published “Women and Their Bodies,” a 193-page booklet that dared to address sexuality and reproductive health, including abortion. They distributed it for 75 cents. A year later they changed the title to “Our Bodies, Ourselves” — and changed the women’s health movement around the world. The book was updated continuously in print through 2011 and online until 2018. We invite you to learn more about OBOS’s legacy and ongoing advocacy work.
