Our Bodies our Blogs

A harsh critic of the Bush administration’s approach to women’s health, this blog could have lost its way once Obama came into office. However, it is as fierce and clever as ever, providing refreshing and informed criticism towards government policy, the medical establishment and the media. They ask the questions every woman doesn’t realise she needs to.

Dr Petra Boyton

More’sagony aunt is increasingly becoming an important but critical commentator on women’s health in the British media. Ben Goldacre is a fan of this psychologist, so get on board. A nice bit of brain food on the side of position of the fortnight, and I think she’s going to become every thinking girl’s favourite.

The Optimum Population Trust

Yes, sometimes it talks about chickens and cows, but this scientific and political site does mainly look at the way human reproduction works…and how it affects the planet. With a wide range of sources, the news it reports on it varied and exciting.

In Rude Health

A comprehensive if naive look at women’s health in the media and brilliantly written. Its author is a professional journalist who writes books looking at the fruitier side of couple’s health, hence the ‘rude’ in the title.


If anything is going to make you happy to be a woman in Europe its this blog. More of a social enterprise than a news source this, website provides information and campaigns for sex education in the United States.
