Judy Norsigian, Radcliffe ’70, is the executive director and cofounder of Our Bodies Ourselves (OBOS). Originally called the Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, OBOS is a global nonprofit that promotes accurate, evidence-based information on girls’ and women’s reproductive health and sexuality, and addresses the social, economic, and political conditions that affect health care access and quality of care. In 1971, OBOS published a pamphlet about women’s health titled Our Bodies, Ourselves. Still in print today, Our Bodies, Ourselves has been an invaluable resource for women’s health concerns for over 40 years. Judy Norsigian kindly took some time to discuss her time at Harvard and with OBOS with Manifesta.
