In May of 1969, twelve students from Boston’s Emmanuel College met to discuss their experience with doctors and their self-knowledge at a female liberation conference. Given the enthusiasm and demand for this conversation on women’s health, they decided to host workshops and then create a newsprint on the research and personal stories they’d gathered. Four years after the original discussion, Our Bodies, Ourselves was printed for mass-consumption with chapters on sexual health, reproductive choices, and aging, amongst other topics. This revised version from 1979 is recognized by the American Library Association’s Young Adult Service Division as one of the best books of the decade.
