Sooo important. Still. Unfortunately, the organization Our Bodies, Ourselves, the descendent of the Boston Women's Book Health Collective, has decided to stop publishing and focus on advocacy. 2011 will be the last edition. Yes, the web makes information more available, but still there is a great need for the kind of clear-headed analysis, reassurance and support OBOS always provided to women. Especially in the age of Trump. ( )

The Boston Women's Health Collective addresses the leading women's health issues of the 1990's. Here is an expanded and updated version for the 1990s and beyond of the book that has been called "the most important work to come out of the women's movement." This new edition discusses the female condom, Norplant, HIV and AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome and more.

A New Edition For A New Era.

Interesting material that could be presented in an equally interesting manner but isn't. ( )

A serious reference for women's health and body issues! My copy is of limited value only because it's dated. I have enough faith in the organization to recommend with a fair amount of confidence whatever the newest edition is. ( )
