Our Bodies, Ourselves to Cease Publication | Writer’s Relief

The organization that publishes the nearly fifty-year-old guide to women’s health, Our Bodies, Ourselves, has announced that the book will stop being published. In an NPR article, Writer’s Relief discovered more about the history of this landmark work:

At some point, you or a woman you know has likely looked through a copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves. The book was revolutionary when it was first published in the early 1970s. It taught women about their own anatomy and sexuality at a time when talking frankly about sex was considered — well, unladylike.

Now, the organization that publishes Our Bodies, Ourselves has announced that after nearly 50 years and nine editions, it’s ceasing publication of the signature book. Executive Director Julie Childers says the the [sic] small nonprofit Our Bodies, Ourselves organization could no longer afford to keep publishing updates.
