    The authors, some of them original contributors, agree: knowledge is power. Still, without ladies around the globe uniting, there won't be much progress in the medical and healthcare industries. This volume, like its predecessor, covers a lot of ground (but doesn't go into too much detail), and has a strongly feminist perspective, highlighting sexual health, reproductive rights, community-based organization, and the political, economic, and social issues that impede women's access to quality healthcare.

    Women, who are the primary purveyors of healthcare in the U.S., are often shortchanged when it comes to equitable medical care. Much of the new intel in Our Bodies, Ourselves details recent studies on women's needs, while exploring the experiences of diverse ethnicities, sexual identities, and economic strata. The authors make clear that key life events like pregnancy, PMS, and menopause should be observed as natural processes, rather than illnesses requiring a whole team of medical professionals.

    The book's inspiring political stance might energize readers to explore the bountiful resources noted or the OBOS Web site. Not just a book, OBOS is a health revolution and warrants a spot on every gal's bookshelf!
