After Ms. Magazine published Betty's article "Getting to Know Me", she was flooded with requests for her 18 page article so she decided she had to publish her first book. As the checks poured in, she went to work. She was living in San Francisco when she set out to write what would become the feminist classic Liberating Masturbation.  I love this picture because it's so Betty - sitting in the nude with papers and vulva sketches all around her. 

Little did she know then that her 18-page article would eventuallly become her international best seller Sex for One.
