And the women’s prize goes to…a man!

Organizations that claim to campaign for or promote or defend women continue to help men take over.

“…to honour, celebrate and champion women’s voices, and to shine a spotlight on phenomenal fiction written by women…a diverse breadth of women’s voices…the voices of women and the experience of being a woman…the word ‘woman’ equates to a cis woman, a transgender woman” which is to say A MAN.

We’re here to celebrate women, we’re here because literary prizes so consistently overlooked women, we set out (as the Orange Prize) to redress that overlooking of women, and now we’re dynamiting the whole idea by including MEN in a prize we set up for WOMEN.
