Episode 2: Body of Knowledge
45 years ago a group of women in the Boston area collectively published Our Bodies Ourselves—a groundbreaking book that put forward the radical notion that women should get to know their own bodies and take charge of their health and sexuality. Since its first publication, the book has sold more than four million copies and been adapted into 30 languages. In this episode, we talk to Vilunya Diskin, one of the founders of the Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, Juanita Crider, who participated in updating the book for contemporary readers, and Judith Rosenbaum, JWA’s Executive Director.
