In 'Ask Dr. Ruth,' The Famous Sex Therapist Looks Inward At Last

"Dr. Ruth brought sex education into America's homes at a time when frank talk about the subject was considered off-color and out-of-bounds in broadcasting."

"But Ruth Westheimer was more guarded when it came to talking about her own life story: a young Jewish girl who became a refugee during World War II after her parents died in the Holocaust."

"At age 90, Dr. Ruth is opening up. An upcoming documentary on Hulu, Ask Dr. Ruth, profiles Westheimer's life and journey, revealing a side of her life that even her own children never fully understood until recently."

"'I have changed my mind with this film,' she said in an interview with NPR's Scott Simon."
