Global Network Partners & Projects


Over the years, Our Bodies Ourselves – primarily through the OBOS Global Initiative – has collaborated with women’s groups around the world to create and distribute publications based on “Our Bodies, Ourselves.” As of January 2020, resources based on the book exist in 31 different languages.

The most recent project, “Corps Accord: Guide de Sexualité Positive,” was completed in 2019 by the Quebec group La CORPS Féministe. Additional projects are underway: The Roshan Institute for Persian Studies and the Department of Women’s Studies at the University of Maryland are developing online content in Farsi;  women from the Assiouar Association in Morocco are creating resources on sexual anatomy and body image in Arabic and French; and women in Brazil are collaborating on a Portuguese adaptation.

Excerpts from resources or the full resource are available online in twelve languages, including Arabic, Bangla, Herbrew, Kiswahili and Russian.
