This is one of the best books I have ever seen. When I found it in the bookstore, I knew right then and there It was coming home with me right then and there. I can't think of a better book to help women learn about how our bodies work.

From the amazing illustrations by then-artist, now-nurse Suzann Gage of everything important to know about women's bodies and reproductive health--from cervical and breast self exams and the effect areas of various forms of birth control, to an "inner view of a woman's breasts" that shows how "milk secretion [is] like a shower head" (wish I'd seen that before I breast-fed!), a wonderful vulva/hymen/cervix photo gallery, and radical redefinitions of the biology of the clitoris--this is a fantastic book for any girl or woman who wants to know how her body works. It was a powerful publication in 1981 and it's just as good today. Further, it's a reminder that the 1970s nurtured a flourishing of activists who believed in self/adult education, and produced widely accessible and useful publications. The book should be updated and reissued, but until then, buy the original publishing--it's worth the cost.

the pictures alone are so hard to get that having this book in your fertility awareness library is indispensable.

As a feminist sex educator this book is the closest I'll ever get to having a Sex Bible about how a woman's body functions. Whenever I have a question I go to my bookshelf and start reading "A New View." These women are among the many unsung heroes. Their book was originally published by Simon & Schuster but at the end of the first year, one of the "good old boys" finally noticed they described how women could easily administer their own abortions at home with some thin plastic tubing and a suction pump. The book was GONE in a flash! I"ll let you figure out why.

There are some things in the book that are dated, such as the IUD numbers and information. IUDs have been redesigned, since the book's publication in the early 1990s, and there are only two on the market now. They are both 99% effective.

The images shown in the book are of real women; a good thing to see to show the diversity of normal anatomy. The section on self-care is great.
