International Women's Day 2017

To celebrate International Women's Day 2017 we surveyed the last ten years of publishing to find out what percentage of our books are by and/or about women. We were delighted by the results.

View our survey and guide to the last ten years of female voices, stories and research here.

In addition to the report we recorded a special episode of our vlog featuring our new release, New and Selected Poems of Anna Wickham. Anna was a remarkable and defiant woman, and we celebrate her life and work in this video.
