For those unaware, the Australian Women Writers Challenge (AWW) was established nine years ago in order to boost female writers in Australia and help them overcome gender bias in the mainstream media. The following quote comes directly from the AWW’s website:
The AWW challenge was set up to help overcome gender bias in the reviewing of books by Australian women. The challenge encourages avid readers and book bloggers, male and female, living in or outside Australia, to read and review books by Australian women throughout the year. You don’t have to be a writer to sign up. You can choose to read and review, or read only.
The Australian Women Writers Challenge (AWW) is perhaps one of my all-time favourite reading challenges to be part of each year. This will be my ninth year participating in the reading challenge and although I’ve come with mixed results due to lagging reviews in the past two years (and overly ambitious personal challenge targets), I am still confident and somewhat ecstatic to see what 2021 challenge will bring my way.
Read = 10 books
Review = 6 Books
