I'm trying to build a list of memoirs about women who were, in essence, misfits -- either by chance or by choice. They zigged while others zagged; faced challenges other women didn't; were born in a time that didn't fully understand them, etc., etc.
If they ended up being role models, all the better. Particularly interested in women who either couldn't have children or chose not to be mothers. Eager to hear your suggestions...
