THE BESTSELLING WOMEN’S HEALTH CLASSIC—INFORMING AND INSPIRING WOMEN ACROSS GENERATIONS

Hailed by The New York Times as a “feminist classic,” this comprehensive guide to all aspects of women’s sexuality and reproductive health—including menopause, birth control, childbirth, sexual health, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental health, and overall wellbeing—changed the women’s health movement around the world and remains as important and relevant as ever.

Providing detailed and empowering information on women’s reproductive health and sexuality, this latest edition of Our Bodies, Ourselves shows how to find and access health information and offers additional resources and stories to educate women about health care injustices and inspires them to work collectively to address them. Including the latest vital information on:

-Changes in the health care system—especially how health care reform affects women and how to get the care you need.

-Safer sex—how to engage in pleasurable, satisfying sexual experiences while protecting your health and the health of your partner.

-Environmental health risks—including minimizing exposure to everyday pollutants that endanger reproductive health.

-Body image—resisting negative media stereotypes and embracing healthier approaches to looking and feeling good.

-Local and global activism—using social media and organizing tactics to build community and advocate for policies that improve women’s lives.

-As well as crucial information about gender identity, sexual orientation, birth control, abortion, pregnancy and birth, perimenopause, and sexuality and sexual health as we age.

Together with its companion website, OurBodiesOurselves.org, Our Bodies, Ourselves is a one-stop resource that belongs on the bookshelves of women of all ages.
