International Women's Day

Sunday 8 March 2020

International Women's Day is a global recognition of women’s achievements, with the aim of championing a better, fairer society for all. This year, the focus of the campaign is gender equality – supported with the message #eachforequal – and to celebrate we’ve brought together a fantastic range of some of the best new women’s writing. Our selection features vital, incisive non-fiction including Caroline Criado Perez’s award-winning Invisible Women, as well as the panoramic survey of black British womanhood that is Bernardine Evaristo’s Booker-conquering Girl, Woman, Other and inspiring anthologies of pioneering women for the leaders of the future. Challenging the status quo and speaking truth to power, these are books to help create a gender equal world.

Armed with data both jaw-dropping and incontrovertible, Caroline Criado Perez makes a watertight case against the hidden gender bias that skews modern society towards the advantage of men. From questioning the dimensions of mobile phones and analysing how much more unsafe women are as car passengers, to drilling into the appalling double standards of the gender pay gap, Invisible Women has been lauded as ‘a devastating indictment of institutionalised complacency and a rallying cry to fight back,’ by the Sunday Times. Unforgettable and truly perception altering, it’s a book to irrevocably change the way we see the world.
