Help to create a bibliography for Therīgāthā and Bhikkhuni resources

As part of the ongoing situation with The First Free Women book, I’m trying to create a bibliography resource for the site firstfreewomen.org (not affiliated with the authour of said book or the publisher).

I’m seeing that lots of lay groups especially are doing programmes around TFFW, and I thought that having additional resources for leaders to use and recommend could help steer them to not only actual translations but material that shares actual bhikkhuni voices.

This is what I have so far: https://firstfreewomen.org/bibliography/

But then I came across this:

Holy moly, there’s lots out there! Which, “yay!” But now I feel out of my depth to try and pick out the best and most helpful resources.

Anyone like to give their opinions on what best to include?

My site has other Bhikkhuni stuff too depending on what you’re looking for:

Underrated IMHO.

I appreciate your short novel - it’s accessible to many.
