Joking apart, I agree it's a good idea for men to read books by & about women, and I despise the sexism of those who refuse to do so. But saying that 'all' men need to read all these 250 books is not exactly helpful.
Women's writing is very diverse and so are men's reading preferences, therefore matching the one to the other can only be done on a personal basis. For example I would probably like something set during World War 2. The Night Watch by Sarah Waters? The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons?
