Our Bodies, Ourselves Book Talk

August 25, 2021 • Harvard Radcliffe Institute

“The Virtual Radcliffe Book Talks features a discussion of Our Bodies, Ourselves, first published in 1971. This event was organized in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the book’s first edition and in connection with the Boston Women’s Health Book Collective Records housed in our Schlesinger Library. The discussion reflects on the historical moment while also focusing on the continuing importance and impact of the living text through new translations and distribution around the world.”
