Editorial Reviews

Review

" Our Bodies, Ourselves, and the Work of Writing is a fascinating and insightful read for anyone who wants to best understand the value of this important text."—The Midwest Review.


"At once a rhetorical and sociological study of the best-selling women's health guide, Our Bodies, Ourselves, this book makes recent history available to a broad readership at a time when the struggles of 1960s and 1970s activists are falling out of living memory." —Laura Otis, Emory University


"Here is a unique approach to a familiar book, the first study to focus on the language, writing, and literary techniques of Our Bodies, Ourselves. Wells evokes a sense of the emotional investment that women had in seeing change in the status quo and offers insights into the women's health movements of which even the participants may have been unaware." —Sue Rosser, Georgia Institute of Technology

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on April 17, 2010
Format: Paperback
Some books inspire few; a few books inspire millions. "Our Bodies, Ourselves and the Work of Writing" looks how the 1973 book has shaped much of feminist writing since its publication, originally intended as a primer on women's health. Since then, countless women have wielded their pens in pursuit of improving the status of women in the world and the book's place itself in female liberation. "Our Bodies, Ourselves, and the Work of Writing" is a fascinating and insightful read for anyone who wants to best understand the value of this important text.
