Club Read's Recommended Nonfiction Written by Women

Description
Per the lively discussion on Club Read in recent weeks, we would like to read more nonfiction written by women, but often it's not as visible. So here is a place to make your recommendations. Any nonfiction works are welcome: history, art, science, music, memoirs. The only caveat is that this is a list of recommendations, so if the book was a stinker, don't add it. Thanks!
