Nuestros Cuerpos, Nuestras Vidas


Nuestros Cuerpos, Nuestras Vidas (NCNV) is a Spanish-language cultural adaptation of Our Bodies, Ourselves for Latina Women.

NCNV, like Our Bodies, Ourselves, honors the personal stories of individual women. Its content and organization, however, acknowledge that Latina perspectives on health and sexuality differ significantly from those expressed within the pages of the English-language book. Nuestros Cuerpos, Nuestras Vidas recognizes that issues of cultural identity, politics, and living life between Latin American and US worlds informs the health of Latina women.
