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 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
Here are the top 20 books we would love to add to the library!
