We Need Advertising Books

Gal’s Guide is building the first independent women’s history library. Each month we push to expand our collection to include a diverse look at women from different backgrounds, occupations, and regions.  This month we want to expand our coverage of women in advertising.

Here are the top 20 books/DVDs we would love to add to the library!
