In 1969, a group of women began meeting in the Boston area to discuss women’s health issues. A year later they published a 138-page newsprint booklet that we sold in my collective at the Chicago Women’s Liberation Union for 35 cents. In 1971 the group legally incorporated as the Boston Women’s Health Book Collective and by March of 1973 the New York Times reviewed their book Our Bodies, Ourselves
- published by Simon and Schuster. The male reviewer called the book lucidly informative and added, I don’t see how any sensible woman-even an antifeminist one-could fail to be enlightened by it.
