    I read this book for the first time and decided I had to use in my undergrad class -- I've used this book in intro women's studies classes ever since. Funny, moving, mature, sometimes -- not just "first-time" stories, but storiesabout the meaning of bleeding throughout a woman's life. Over 200 of my students have loved it. Woman and men. Read it, look at the illustrations -- think about it. Love this book.
