Unsung Heroines

Fiction + (Her)story. Zing Tsjeng is in the front row at the Baileys Book Bar this week to hear a panel of brilliant female historians as they discuss inspirational women from history, including those who have been unjustly written out of the narrative. The interplay between fact and fiction has produced some of the most engaging stories ever written, and this episode is all about celebrating this union. Bestselling author and Women’s Prize for Fiction Founder Director Kate Mosse is joined by 2019 Women's Prize for Fiction Chair of Judges, author and broadcaster Professor Kate Williams, specialist in European colonial and post-colonial History Professor Olivette Otele, and author, broadcaster and Classicist Bettany Hughes.


Books covered include:

No Surrender by Constance Maud

Anything written by Ancient Greek poet Sappho

Pao by Kerry Young
