Women’s Health Heroes Hall of Fame

Our Bodies Ourselves presents the Womens’ Health Heroes Hall of Fame, honoring the work of outstanding individuals and organizations that have made significant, long-lasting contributions to women’s health.

Their work covers a wide range of health fields and disciplines: midwives and women advocating for safer, more comfortable births; LGBT and civil rights activists; founders of websites on chronic illness and teen sexuality; abortion providers and counselors; academics; student organizers; and many more.

The Women’s Health Hall of Fame launched in 2009. As of 2011, there have 64 inductees. Please scroll down to learn more about each member’s work and accomplishments.

2011 Inductees

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” the organization decided to honor the work of its global partners who have adapted “Our Bodies, Ourselves” for their own communities using culturally unique resources — developed in a range of print, digital and social interactive formats — to advance the health and human rights of women and girls, often at great risk to themselves and their families.

A brief summary of each of their accomplishments is posted on our blog. Some global partners have written blog posts about their successes as well as the obstacles they encounter in their own countries; if this is true for a particular group, you’ll be able to click on the link “Read blog post” below the group’s photo. More about each group and the resources they have published is available at OBOS’s Global Initiative.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” we honor the work of OBOS’s global partners who have adapted “Our Bodies, Ourselves” for their own communities using culturally unique resources — including a range of print, digital and social interactive formats — to advance the health and human rights of women and girls.

The 24 organizations presented here were inducted into the Women’s Health Heroes Hall of Fame in 2011 for having made significant, long-lasting contributions to women’s health, often at great risk to themselves and their families. A <a title=”summary of accomplishments” href=”../blog/2011/07/meet-the-newest-members-of-the-womens-health-heroes-hall-of-fame” target=”_self”>brief summary of each of their accomplishments</a> is posted on our blog. More about each group and the resources they have published is <a title=”More information on OBOS’s global partners” href=”http://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/programs/network/foreign” target=”_self”>available at OBOS’s Global Initiative</a>.

Some global partners are writing blog posts about their successes as well as the obstacles they encounter in their own countries. An asterisk indicates the post will be published soon.
