Review quote

If only every little girl were born with a copy of "Our Bodies, Ourselves" in her hands, we would raise a society filled with healthy, confident women. And if women could have only one book on their shelves, let it be this classic tome filled to the brim with practical and empowering information. -- Toni Weschler, M.P.H., author of "Taking Charge of Your Fertility"
