On International Women’s Day I asked members of our Facebook page to name their most inspirational female author and received more than 1,000 replies. Over the last couple of days I’ve been getting all the answers together to bring you our latest poll results and now we have them.
You were all very enthusiastic in your replies with a few hundred different authors mentioned. The top 50 is an eclectic mix made up of contemporary and classic authors, and here they are, the top 50 inspirational female authors chosen by you this International Women’s Day.
The top five, and it’s quite a top five are…
Then we have
Nora Roberts/J.D Robb
Louisa May Alcott
That’s a pretty impressive top ten of authors, but we thought ‘why stop there’, let’s go for the top 50 from the list…
Daphne du Maurier
Laura Ingells Wilder
Jean M Auel
Sue Monk Kidd
Wow, what a list and what a fantastic celebration of female authors! Did your favourite make the list, is there anyone you would add?
