Do you remember when you first read “Our Bodies, Ourselves”? Tell us your story!

Ellen Silver HighfieldI was introduced to OBOS in 1973 as a freshman at BU.  I had joined (that very new thing!) a Women’s Group.  It was the recommended reading, and became our go-to bible for information.  I always loved the clear, no non-sense, no beating around the bush information which was totally a new approach for me.  I felt very hip knowing about OBOS, and truthfully have used it many, many times over the years to answer questions.  I also stock it in my waiting room for patients.

I have particularly appreciated that OBOS has been translated into so many languages, making this important information accessible for all kinds of women around the globe.  Thank you!
