No More New Editions of Our Bodies, Ourselves

The most recent new edition of Our Bodies, Ourselves will be the last. The organization that publishes the iconic book announced last week that it can no longer afford to update the book and put out new editions. Instead, it will transition to a volunteer-led organization "that will mainly advocate for women’s health and social justice." Our Bodies, Ourselves was "revolutionary" when it was released in the 1970s, educating women about their anatomy and sexuality at a time when many of the subjects it addressed were taboo, NPR reports.The last revision was released in 2011. (More women's issues stories.)
