Picture Books About Outstanding Women

This is a list of picture books for children of not only famous "women in history" but also of "outstanding" women in "everyday life". The list contains books about prominent women from the women's and civil rights movement, as well as those making outstanding contributions to the arts and science and sports.

The list is originally based on suggestions from the monthly picture book club of The Children's Books Group.
