As an avid reader who has read about half of these books, I think it's not a bad reading list for persons of any age or gender.

I would, however, have liked to have seen the magnificent Ursula K. Le Guin, Jane Yolen, Alice Walker, Germaine Greer's second book, The Obstacle Race: The Fortunes of Women Painters and Their Work (1979) & Emily Dickinson -at least - to balance the brilliant but troubled Plath in the area of poetry on this list.
