Our Bodies Ourselves
Our Bodies Ourselves (also known as the Boston Women's Health Book Collective) works to empower all women with knowledge of their bodies, health and sexuality. Recognizing that knowledge is power, we provide quality information on women and health and a feminist critique of health and medical care systems. In the public interest, we amplify the effect of our information through publications, advocacy, coalition building, and policy and media work. As part of a national and global women's health movement, we highlight in all our work the role of poverty and societal oppression as major determinants of health, and encourage women to organize for social change.
