Historic Newton presents: The Origins of ‘Our Bodies Ourselves’
November 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
For 50 years, the book Our Bodies Ourselves has set the standard for frank, informative facts about women’s health care. Hear from Newton-based founding members of the Boston Women’s Health Collective about how they created the first stapled booklet and how their then-revolutionary approach to health care grew into an international bestseller. Why did the book catch on and what made it appealing to generations of readers? Audience Q&A follows. Suggested donation, $10 per person. Register in advance for this Zoom session.
