The Boston Women’s Health Book Collective (now known as Our Bodies Ourselves) is a non-profit organization founded in 1969 whose advisors have included Teresa Heinz Kerry, Susan Love, and Gloria Steinem. Their mission is to empower women (and others) by providing information about health, sexuality, and reproduction. For five decades Our Bodies, Ourselves was the organization’s core vehicle for driving their mission. While OBOS is still recognized for its voice in policy, advocacy, and educational efforts related to women’s health, and women’s groups across the globe continue to produce translation/adaptations of this iconic text. Judy Norsigian is the current board chair of Our Bodies Ourselves.
