COMMUNITY ACTION & ACTIVISM

The Notre Corps, Nous-Mêmes Collective began with a few women who decided to come together to create a current French edition of “Our Bodies, Ourselves.”  They then looked for women from different backgrounds to ensure a greater diversity, understanding and inclusiveness.
