Our latest episode is in anticipation of the Women’s Prize for Fiction (also known as the Bailey’s Prize). In this episode, Amanda and Adiba discuss why the Women’s Prize for Fiction came about, and the criticism that it has often garnered. They consider whether the prize is still necessary today, and discuss women’s roles within the literary industry in general.
