“Personal and communal, informative and affecting, this mammoth book of protest, progress, and regression eloquently confirms that the long, frustrating battle rages on to secure women access to respectful, high-quality, and unbiased health care.”
“Before her death, crusading journalist Seaman compiled this hefty collection of feminist writings on women's health. Revisit the struggle for control of our bodies through the works of Shere Hite, Shulamith Firestone, Gloria Steinem, Phyllis Chesler and more."
“A valuable work for anyone interested in the women’s health movement and an essential resource for all collections."
“What a vital compendium of women’s health and feminist history Voices of the Women's Health Movement is, essential food for the body and the mind. To paraphrase Alice Walker, the writings contained in this book all fall into the category of 'words that save lives.'"
—Moyra Davey, artist and author of Mother Reader
About the Author
One of the nation’s most tireless health advocates, BARBARA SEAMAN (1935-2008) co-founded the National Women’s Health Network and pioneered a new style of health reporting that focused on patients’ rights. Her groundbreaking investigative book, The Doctor’s Case Against the Pill (1969), prompted Senate hearings in the 1970s that led to a warning label on oral contraceptives and the drastic lowering of estrogen doses due to dangerous health effects. Dedicated to reaching a wide audience, Seaman wrote columns for Brides Magazine, Ladies’ Home Journal, and Ms., inspiring women around the world to take control of their own health. Seaman was a founding advisory board member of and key advisor to Seven Stories Press.
Co-editor LAURA ELDRIDGE is a women’s health writer and activist. She is the author of In Our Control: The Complete Guide to Contraceptive Choices for Women and the co-author of The No-Nonsense Guide to Menopause.
