5: Embodied Knowledge

In the late 1960s, it was difficult to access basic information about women’s health. Jane, frustrated by her doctors’ paternalistic attitude, decided to do more research about her own body so she could advocate for herself. With a group of activists in Boston, Jane and 11 others began taking matters into their own hands and went on to write the groundbreaking book “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” which redefined the women’s health movement. In today’s episode, we explore how one group of women came together to build community, educate themselves, and change how we talk about and treat women’s bodies.
