I didn’t know much about my body...

Do you remember when you first read “Our Bodies, Ourselves”? Tell us your story!

When I was a college girl in the early 70’s, I didn’t know much about my body. Then came OBOS… it empowered me… my friends… my entire generation! Thoughts, questions we had been taught to suppress could now be discussed openly. Thank you OBOS for helping me get in touch not only with myself, but for becoming a life-time proponent for women’s health concerns. BTW: When my daughter turned 13, I gave her first copy of OBOS… may the tradition continue! Happy 40th Birthday!
