Abstract:

"The gold standard for women's health books, in time for the fortieth anniversary of the book's first publication, featuring new material and a completely updated approach to critical women's health issues. The name "Our Bodies, Ourselves" has become synonymous with women's health and protecting it. This updated edition contains vital new information on such issues as the HPV vaccine, changes in the healthcare system, cosmetic surgery, violence against women, healthcare activism in the twenty-first century, and much more. Since its original publication forty years ago, Our Bodies, Ourselves has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide, and resources based on the book are available in twenty five languages, in print, digital, and social interactive formats, and Braille. Called "America's bestselling book on all aspects of women's health" and "a feminist classic" by The New York Times, 300,000 copies of Our Bodies, Ourselves have been donated to women's groups around the world, creating an estimated readership of more than 20 million worldwide. This new edition will tie in closely to the group's website, one of the leading online women's health resources and a recipient of citations for its excellent quality from International Planned Parenthood Federation and Scientific American"--
