“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, very few women, comparatively, have received top awards. Only 14 women have won the Nobel Prize for Literature, and 31 have won the Pulitzer Prize. Reading Women reclaims the bookshelf by interviewing authors and reviewing reviewing books by or about women of all backgrounds and experiences.

Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with talented women writers whose work we’ve loved.
