Nancy Friday's 1970s heyday

Her books are now found in few public library collections, at least according to the evidence found in LINKcat.

According to the American Library Association, Friday's Women on Top was the 70th most challenged book during the 1990s.

This decade was not 'an uncensored age' for her.
