Any day is a good day to learn about the inspiring females of our past. Celebrating International Women’s Day or Women’s History Month is a pretty good reason, though.

Select ebooks about women’s are 80 percent off today on Amazon, with titles costing you as little as $0.99. The sale includes memoirs, textbooks, and historic accounts from women of different races, backgrounds, classes, and ambitions.

You can read about the Mexican-American women who first crossed the borders in the early twentieth century, and the struggles they faced in and out of their own communities. Or there’s the British women who thrived in a post-World War world without men, particularly the wave of female journalists it inspired.

Looking for hardworking ladies who dominated their field? Pick up Sisters in the Brotherhoods, which highlights the blue-collar tradeswomen in 1970s NYC who fought middle-class bias. You could also read about the many female astronomers and scientists who were never talked about in history class in The Unforgotten Sisters.

All of these books and many more are included in this sweet deal. Take the time to read up on these inspiring women while you can save a little money.
