Our Bodies, Ourselves: The Nine U.S. Editions
The First Edition
Women and Their Bodies (1970)
This first printing, a 193-page stapled, newsprint booklet, is created by the founders and published by New England Free Press. The booklet puts women’s health in a radically new political and social context. 5000 printed copies are distributed by hand at workshops and among friends and the booklet becomes an underground success.
