“I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman.” – Virginia Woolf
If you look back over the history of literary awards, few women have received top awards. Only sixteen women have won the Nobel Prize for Literature, and only thirty-one have won the Pulitzer Prize. Reading Women reclaims the bookshelf by interviewing authors and reviewing books by or about women of a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting several titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with talented women writers.
