OUR BODIES, OURSELVES

Our Women's Health Information & Resource Center includes excerpts from our books, web-exclusive content, links, resources, and health news.

OBOS provides clear, truthful information about health, sexuality and reproduction from a feminist and consumer perspective. We vigorously advocate for women's health by challenging the institutions and systems that block women from full control over our bodies and devalue our lives. Our long-standing commitment to serve only in the public interest and our bridge-building capacity are our hallmarks. We remain one of the few women's health groups in the U.S. that doesn't accept funds from pharmaceutical companies and that tries to be scrupulous about conflict of interest.
