I though this book was wonderful . I made a few things from it it had quite a few needle point activities. But I loved the crafts I am part of a craft group and will be check out this book again for ideas to make with them.

Not appropriate for any age. My teenage daughters found the book disgusting. If feminism is this they said they don't want to anything with it.
Something should be seriously wrong with a person who would want to do any of the crafts suggested by the book. What kind of person would make a uterus shape cushion or vagina Christmas tree decoration and actually use them? By the way very sloppily made, hard to recognize - ugly. The author definitely is not good with her needlework (or any craft).
And why not a liver cushion or anus decoration?! :) What about being proud of your intestines and maybe we should make intestine necklaces.:)
And overall it is weird to be proud for the things that are given to you, you born with like your gender, ethnicity, race etc. It is good to be comfortable with what you are - black, white, tall, short, male or female, etc. but one should be proud exclusively for the things she/he achieved with his/hers own efforts.
Me and my daughters say NOPE, as the book recommends. Too bad that OPL wasted money ( 16 copies!!!) for such garbage.
