Shere Hite’s 1976 bestselling book, THE HITE REPORT, became a touchstone for thousands of women in the wake of the sexual revolution, liberating the female orgasm by revealing the most private experiences of thousands of anonymous survey respondents. Her findings rocked the American establishment and presaged current conversations about gender, sexuality, and bodily autonomy. So how did Shere Hite disappear? In Nicole Newnham’s THE DISAPPEARANCE OF SHERE HITE, the search for this pioneer of sexual health and self-care is framed by her historical impact, and the challenges she faced in a media landscape unprepared for frank conversations about women’s bodies.
