Growing Up Female
Heyman introduced the book, writing "This book is about women, and their lives as women, from one feminist’s point of view." The book collected photographs of Heyman's life, "challeng[ing] assumptions about being a woman", and "documented the female experience from a feminist perspective." Andy Grundberg described the book as "test[ing] the line between reportage and personal expression." The book portrayed numerous black-and-white images of women in various activities, including a photograph of Ms. Heyman herself having an abortion.
