Kate Mosse: Women in History
Advertisement
In January 2021, in the midst of the Delta variant wave of Covid-19 and on the verge of the second full national lockdown, novelist and Women’s Prize Founder Kate Mosse decided to do something radical: she put a call out on social media asking for people – anyone – around the world to nominate extraordinary women whose stories needed to be told.
The idea for the #WomanInHistory campaign was born.
Within days she had received thousands of nominations. The campaign snowballed and soon she was inundated. Some names were familiar, but many more were women she had never heard of. Nominations came from all over the world: Iran, Syria, Algeria, Brazil, Russia….
Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries: How Women (Also) Built the World is published just after Kate appears at Birmingham Literature
Festival – early copies will be available from our bookshop on the day of the event. Through these stories, you’ll meet nearly 1,000 women
whose names deserve to be better known.
Chaired by Fiona Joseph
