We are delighted to announce that Women & Power: A Manifesto by Mary Beard has been shortlisted for Best Popular Non Ficiton at this year's Specsavers National Book Awards.

A #1 Sunday Times bestseller, Women & Power sees Beard explore the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template.

Also on the shortlist are Slay in Your Lane by Elizabeth Uviebinené and Yomi Adegoke, This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge, The Spy and the Traitor by Ben MacIntyre and The Secret Barrister. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 20 November 2018 at a ceremony presented by Zoe Ball.
