Books about Women in STEM [part1]

Below is a very incomplete and un-annotated list of some of the books I have used in my research into women’s history in engineering. This is a list of some of the books which I have donated over the years to the Glasgow Women’s Library. It therefore does not include a similar number in my house which I have not donated because I use them a lot. One day I will catalogue the others!
