Description
Recommend good books, written by men and women, telling positive stories about women and girls and examining women's issues. This is based on my massive reading list of books about women and girls, but additions are welcome.

Explanations
aulsmith : I would argue that Scout is trans, not a woman.
sturlington: There is no evidence to support that. She is also not a woman. She is a girl.
elkiedee: I'm not anti trans, but not confirming to stereotype gender roles of her time doesn't make Scout "trans"
