There’s never a bad time to read about historically badass ladies, but since March is Women’s History Month, now is a particularly perfect moment to bust out your library card and take in some stories of women who’ve changed art, culture, and history as we know it. (Never mind that every month of the year should be as much Women’s History Month as it is Men’s History Month, but you get where this is going.) Here you’ll find 50 great biographies and autobiographies of famous, fascinating, and inspiring women from Frida Kahlo to Mina Loy to Marie Curie — only 50 of many such books, of course, so if you don’t see your favorite here, add it to the list in the comments.

1.The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein

One of the weirdest “biographies” of all time, a playful and irreverent work in which Stein documents — in her partner Toklas’ voice — some 30 years of her own life and their life together.

2.The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait, Frida Kahlo

3.The Brontë Myth, Lucasta Miller

4.The Life of Charlotte Brontë, Elizabeth Gaskell

5.Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Harriet Jacobs

6.The Silent Woman, Janet Malcolm

7.Just Kids, Patti Smith

8.The Diary of a Young Girl, Anne Frank

9.Girl in a Band, Kim Gordon

10.I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou

11.Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman, Robert K. Massie

12.Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout, Lauren Redniss
