In 1971 a woman named Carol Downer used a speculum, a mirror and a flashlight, to look at her own cervix. She was the mother of six children and had never seen her own cervix. She saw where her babies had passed through, where her menstrual flow came from, and what the doctors had commented on over the years. It was a very enlightening moment for her. What she did with that knowledge was revolutionary. She was part of a woman's group, working to legalize abortion. She took her speculum to the next meeting and showed them her cervix. The group in turn took speculums to the California NOW conference and did "Self Help" for hundreds of women. Self Help groups became a place where women could see their cervixes, talk about their reproductive health care, and learn from each other's health experiences.

This gym is absolutely amazing! It is located in between State Street, Downtown Crossing, and Park Street Stations (which makes it extremely easy to get to). The staff are welcoming, and the owner helpful. They make you feel right at home. Not only is the staff great, but the gym itself is very appealing. There are also fitness classes and personal trainers available. I personally work out there every morning and love every second of it. There is never a wait for machines or any equipment. It is overall a great place if you really want to focus on your work out.
