Mary Ann Sieghart and Dorothy Koomson talk to Kate Mosse

The effect of gender bias in publishing: Who holds the power?

Hay Festival 2022, 

Is the publishing sector gender-biased? Do men read more male than female writers? Do reviewers review more books by male writers? Or are women currently getting more opportunities than male novelists? Join the debate with Dorothy Koomson, novelist and 2022 Women’s Prize judge, Kate Mosse, novelist and Founder Director of the Women’s Prize for Fiction, and Mary Ann Sieghart, journalist, author of The Authority Gap and this year’s chair of the Women’s Prize for Fiction judges.
