Read More Women

We believe that reading more books written by women is essential for attaining gender equality. Women authors are underrepresented in literature and historically it has been harder for women to become successful writers. Statistics show that women are reading more books than men, yet most of the books read are written by men. If we are to break down the bias, it has to start with changing our reading habits on an individual level.

No. It is free to become a SheReader and participate in events. Periodically throughout the year you will be asked if you want to make a financial contribution to the group but those donations are completely voluntary and up to your discretion. If you would like to contrbute, you can do so here.

Yes. In order to include all of our members, in many parts of the world, our book discussions will forever be virtual and hosted on Zoom. Some socials will be in person and members are encouraged to arrange get togethers with other local members if they want to.

Upcoming Book

In 1901, the word ‘Bondmaid’ was discovered missing from the Oxford English Dictionary. This is the story of the girl who stole it.

Esme is born into a world of words. Motherless and irrepressibly curious, she spends her childhood in the ‘Scriptorium’, a garden shed in Oxford where her father and a team of dedicated lexicographers are collecting words for the very first Oxford English Dictionary. Esme’s place is beneath the sorting table, unseen and unheard. One day a slip of paper containing the word ‘bondmaid’ flutters to the floor. Esme rescues the slip and stashes it in an old wooden case that belongs to her friend, Lizzie, a young servant in the big house. Esme begins to collect other words from the Scriptorium that are misplaced, discarded or have been neglected by the dictionary men. They help her make sense of the world.
