It's been 40 years since the classic women's health book, Our Bodies, Ourselves was first published. In the 70s, it was revolutionary. Now, a new edition - the 9th edition - has just been published to celebrate the anniversary. We talk with two of the book's original authors, Judy Norsigian and Vermonter Jane Pincus, about its genesis, and how it influenced generations of women.
And we want to hear from you. Let us know how you discovered Our Bodies, Ourselves and what it meant to your personal evolution. Post below your memories and experiences in the comments section below.
Also on the program, we talk to Secretary of State Jim Condos about his 12-stop "transparency tour" across the state, which kicks off this week. The goal is to educate state and town employees and anyone else who's interested about Vermont's public records and open meetings laws.
