Submitted by: Cat GrantDo you remember when you first read “Our Bodies, Ourselves”? Tell us your story!
I found this book when I was about 20. It politicized me about my body and other women’s bodies — in reading it I realized that our bodies weren’t “private.” I found it just as I was changing my position on women’s right to choose – moving away from a pro-life position to a position where women had the right to control their bodies. I bought one in a second hand shop and passed it on to a younger woman and hopefully she passed it on too. A new edition is well needed for a new generation for girls and women. All mothers, aunties, grandmothers should give this to their daughters, granddaughters and nieces. All women around the world should have this book — and it wouldn’t hurt the men to read it either!
