Suffolk University has received an anonymous $2 million gift to endow its Center for Women’s Health & Human Rights, which will enable the center to carry on the mission of the path-breaking book, Our Bodies, Ourselves, through a reinvigorated Our Bodies Ourselves Today online platform providing information and resources on health and sexuality.

The Center for Women’s Health & Human Rights, founded in 2003 under the leadership of Sociology Professor Amy Agigian, is the first academic initiative in the United States to focus on women’s health as a human rights imperative.
