We Need Women’s History Books

Gal’s Guide is building the first independent women’s history library and is seeking works by women and about women in various career fields. This month we have a list of 20 books that showcase a variety of women in one book.

UPDATE: The Gal's Guide Library opened March 6, 2020.

Each link goes to our Amazon Smile Charity Wish List.

If you have these books and would like to donate used copies
