Beskrivning
In honor of Women's History Month, our List of the Month this March is devoted to the Best Biographies of Notable Women that we have read. Each participant may vote on ten titles, and may define "notable" as they choose. For the purposes of this list, we define "biography" expansively, to include autobiographies and memoirs. Please only downvote titles if they do not fit the theme, and are not biographies.

Förklaringar
AbigailAdams26: This was the first adult book I ever read, taken from my mother's shelves when I was a little girl, and I was fascinated by it. I reread it many times.
