If you were a high school or college girl in the ‘70s, Our Bodies, Ourselves was one of most amazing books ever.

"The woman power of this nation can be the power which makes us whole and heals the rotten community, now so shattered by war and poverty and racism. I have great faith in the power of women who will dedicate themselves whole-heartedly to the task of remaking our society." -- Coretta Scott King
