Baileys Women’s Prize names ‘most life-changing novels written by women’

The Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction has named the 20 ‘most life-changing novels written by women’, as voted by the public through the prize’s #ThisBook twitter campaign. From ‘thousands’ of nominations, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee was selected as the ‘most life-changing novel’, followed by Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. Nearly half of the top 20 books were published before 1960, including Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and George Eliot’s Middlemarch. To see the full list, visit the website here.
