Center to host co-author of “Our Bodies, Ourselves”

ANDOVER — In recognition of Women’s History Month, on March 19 at 1:30 p.m., The Center at Punchard will host Joan Ditzion, the coauthor of the legendary book series “Our Bodies, Ourselves.”

Karen Payne-Taylor, BoomerVenture Program Coordinator in town, calls Ditzion a national force behind the Women’s Movement.

The cost of the event is $8.

Ditzion will be at The Center at Punchard, formerly known as the Andover Senior Center, at 30 Whittier Court, on March 19 to discuss her work and how it changed the way women view their health and sexuality. She will open the floor for discussion.

Her book series is the primer on sexual equality, workplace inequity, and reproductive rights, both for the emerging women’s movement in the early ‘70s as well as today. A recent addition to the book series, “Ourselves, Growing Older,” ensures that the “Our Bodies, Ourselves” series is relevant to woman at all stages of life.

On the night of March 19, Ditzion will also receive a life-time achievement award from the National Association of Social Workers, Mass. chapter.

Call 978-623-8321 for more information.
