International Women's Day: 13 Essential Books On Equality For Women (PHOTOS, POLL)

It's International Women's Day and the theme this year is equal rights, equal opportunity and progress for all. HuffPost editors chose a few books that got us thinking about how far we've come, or if it's very far at all. We'd love to hear your thoughts about where real progress is being made--West or East? America and Europe, or Asia and the MIddle East? Let us know what you think.
