Did you know a woman wrote the first sci-if novel? And the first post-apocalyptic novel? Fun fact: it was the same woman, Mary Shelley, and she's only one the many unstoppable women writers on the list who either redefined or entirely invented new genres. These are the books by women that were (and for some, still are) like nothing else there.
Also FYI: the earliest novel (fitting the description of a "lengthy prose work detailing a narrative arc and intimate human experiences") was also invented by a woman?
