A Reading List of Remarkable Women in History


Women have made significant contributions to the world's history that often goes unnoticed. In honor of Women's History Month, this guide provides two bibliographies of online items in the USF Libraries catalog:

  1. Women's History provides a list of books and videos about the contributions women have made in specific fields, eras, and countries.
  2. Women's Biographies is not a list of famous women. Rather, it is an attempt to introduce you to many women who's names you may not recognize and their legacies.
