Welcome to Women's History Month.
As many of you regular readers of the Amazon Book Review know, we've highlighted several of these books in the past months and years. But Women's History Month is a great excuse for us to pull together in one place a list of books about decisive moments in history in which women made change happen as well as books about strong women who continue to make change happen today.
You'll notice that a number of these books include the words "the untold story" in their subtitles. That's a bit of marketing hype (few of us want to spend our precious reading time on "the well-worn story"), but there's a lot of truth there as well, unfortunately. So dive into one—or four, or eleven!—of these books to expand your knowledge and gain a new perspective.
