ThrowBack Thursday: Dr. Ruth

For our week on women in STEM, this ThrowBack Thursday goes to MAKER and sex therapist Dr. Ruth.

Ruth Westheimer grew up an orphan of the Holocaust and ended up becoming a groundbreaking national sensation in the United States. After studying at Columbia University, she became a radio and TV host, gaining fame for her shows "Sexually Speaking" and The Dr. Ruth Show.  Dr. Ruth is praised both for teaching and empowering woman to take responsibility for their own sexual and romantic happiness.

Watch her videos to hear her thoughts on achieving sexual satisfaction, contraception before the pill, and the effects of the digital age on relationships.
