About Reading Women

Welcome, friends. 

It all started with a question: why are all of the top books (in class and on lists) written by men? Surely there are women who are worth studying? Surely there are women who have won these awards? Why is no one talking about them? Thus the Reading Women Podcast was born. 

Since June 2016, we've been scouring the internet to uncover forgotten women writers and to highlight up-and-coming writers as well. Along the way, we've attempted to dig into the publishing aspect too, why aren't women talked about as much? Who's designing those beautiful covers? 

We've loved meeting all of you along the way – you make our reading experiences so much richer and have been invaluable to the development of the podcast. When we say that this podcast would not be possible without our listeners, that is not an exaggeration. You've helped cover hosting, merchandise, and so much more. 

As our patron, you will get access to sneak peeks of upcoming episodes, a special patrons-only newsletter, and more. You also get to share your thoughts on new segments and upcoming themes. 

Thank you all for your continued support!
