Our Bodies Ourselves {featured resource}

Our Bodies Ourselves (OBOS) began in 1970 with the publication of the first edition of Our Bodies, Ourselves. Also known as the Boston Women’s Health Book Collective (BWHBC), OBOS is a nonprofit, public interest women’s health education, advocacy, and consulting organization, which has inspired countless women and the women’s health movement; in particular by producing books that make accurate health and medical information accessible to a broad audience, weaving women’s stories into a framework of practical and clearly written text.

Gearing up for a celebration of its 40th year anniversary, OBOS is currently inviting readers to submit their personal stories and will release the ninth edition of Our Bodies, Ourselves (revised with the help of more than 200 contributors) on October 1, 2011. If Our Bodies, Ourselves has made a difference in your life, or in the lives of your family or friends, consider submitting your story.
