Jackie Ormes: the first African American woman cartoonist by Nancy Goldstein
Money, a memoir: Women, Emotions, and Cash by Liz Perle

Of course, that's just a drop in the bucket-I'm planning on doing a bit annotated reading list on my blog this month! Also, one of my bloggy friends is sponsoring a mini-challenge: http://regularrumination.wordpress.com/2009/03/05/regular-rumination-celebrates-womens-history-month/
