We may only be a few months in to 2018 but we have already seen an incredible movement of female activism and empowerment from the Time’s Up Campaign to the anniversary of 100 Years of Women Voting. It may have kicked off in 2017 but 2018 is definitely the Year of the Woman.
To celebrate this we will be posting our recommended novels by incredible women below on this page and offering a discount on a selected book each month.
