Inspiring Biographies and Autobiographies

Biographies as far as the eye can see – and they’re all about women!

Biography of Marilyn MunroIn the biography section at The Women’s Library, you’ll find books about intelligent women, fashionable women, interesting women, humble women, surprising women, Australian women, devout women, famous women, demanding women – authors, scientists, philanthropists, environmentalists, artists, fashion designers, aviatrices, farmers, actresses, business women, teachers – women in every field of endeavour.

Members can borrow these books and women who are not members are welcome to browse the shelves and read at the library.

This section was the first to be moved to new shelves that were recently given to the library by the City of Sydney. Here you can see the shelves being given a final polish by one of our volunteer staff before the hundreds of books were moved back onto the new shelves.
