An extensive bibliography and guides to good Web sites and organizations give users additional helpful resources. Among the features and benefits of this reference are Charts and tables that present helpful facts and statistics Contacts for Web sites and organizations that provide access to information about women's health issues--much of it free Coverage of the issues, not just the diseases, critical to women's healthcare Provides both basic information and guidance for further reading and research
