The phrase "women's literature" is often associated with fluffy novels about women looking for mates or covers with lipstick and glitter on them. It's high time that women reclaim the phrase. If you look back over the history of literary awards, very few women, comparatively, have received top awards. Only 14 women have won the Nobel Prize for Literature and 31 have won the Pulitzer.
The goal of the Reading Women podcast is to bring previously anonymous women to the forefront of your TBR stack. Each month Kendra Winchester and Autumn Privett pick a theme and then discuss several books in a book club-style podcast. Subscribe today to discover amazing female authors who are giving voice to a part of the world's population that has been largely overlooked.
