Abstract- Women education is the first and the most important step towards attaining women empowerment. Writing and publishing textbooks for medical education is a challenging work, especially by women. This article intends to compile personal information and books published by women in different specialities so as to give recognition to such women on this International Women’s Day. Forty women were shortlisted who have either written or edited textbooks, out of which gynaecology and anatomy were the dominant specialities where contribution of the women was seen maximum. Along with textbooks, these women have many publications in indexed journals and are the recipient of famous awards in their fields. Contributions of these empowered women should be documented more often in literature so that more and more younger women get to know them.

Keywords: medical education, women empowerment, medical textbooks, international women’s day.
