Ruth Bell is a member of the Boston Women's Health Book Collective, which authored Our Bodies, Ourselves. She has worked for many years in the field of health and sex education, especially in programs for teenagers. She is the mother of a son in his twenties and a teenage daughter.From Booklist:
Although there's evidence of updating, reorganization, and rewriting in this revision of the 1987 edition, much of this comprehensive landmark book on sex, physical and emotional health, and personal relationships remains the same--including many of the original quotes, most of which seem to have worn surprisingly well. The relaxed yet authoritative tone has been preserved, as has the level of detail, which is still very explicit. The authors have included more about eating disorders and AIDS; the section on drugs has been expanded, as have the lists of recommended readings; and a new chapter on violence combines discussion of gang violence and sexual harassment with material on rape (which also appeared in the earlier book). There are also a few new illustrations. Why the authors changed the names of some of the teens who are quoted (in one instance Elaine becomes Ellie) is a mystery, but that certainly won't bother today's readers, who will find emotional support as well as specific answers to most of their questions in this nonjudgmental resource that proceeds from the assumption that thoroughly informed teens can make better personal choices.
