All Women’s Prize for Fiction Winners

Women’s Prize for Fiction All Time List 1996-2019

The Women’s Prize for Fiction is awarded annually for the best full-length novel written in English by a woman of any nationality. The award was established to counter the lack of female representation in other literary prizes. The Women’s prize for fiction was sponsored by Orange between 1996 and 2012, Baileys between 2014 and 2017, and currently has a family of sponsors. There’s a cash prize along with a Bessie – a bronze figure of a standing woman created by Grizel Niven. Our list details all the women’s fiction prize winners along with their winning title and nationality.
